Mickey Mantle Home Run Photos (13)
This awesome group of thirteen photos (eleven taken in 1961) chronicle Mantle’s side of the historic home run race that season. Images of the Hall of Famer during the games in which he tallied numbers 17, 33, 35, 47, 51, 54, and others are mixed with shots of some his legendary long balls from years prior and following. All measure 8 x 10”. Overall EX-MT.
This lot is from the legendary San Francisco Examiner Archive (SFXArchive).
This is one largest collections ever of historic vintage photos spanning the entire 20th century. The San Francisco Examiner was the first paper acquired by William Randolph Hearst and itself was the subject of the film classic Citizen Kane. The majority of the photographs are fully identified, and back-stamped with dates. Included throughout this auction is a diverse mix of subjects including sports, historical, political, transportation, Hollywood, and all facets of entertainment.
