Rare relics from the wonderful 1969 ceremonies when Mickey's number was retired for the entire world to see. Includes the program, which is beautifully scored. Pepitone hit a three run homer to beat Aparicio's White Sox from Chicago. Ticket to the game ("Game No. A") is stapled to the cover which has "Mickey Mantle Day #7…61,000 Att." written in vintage ink. Plus an extra ticket a special "Reserved Seat" rain check with "6-8-69" in ink. Overall EX-MT. We will forever remember the image of a hushed Mantle circling the field in a golf cart while people such as Joe DiMaggio and RFK looked on.
