1951 Yankees Regular Season Program (Mantle First Year #6 & feat. Joe DiMaggio)Go Back
Out of stock
“For New York, batting second … number 6, MICK-ey … MANNN-tle!” So resonated through the Yankee public address system in early 1951. Indeed, the 19-year-old hopeful was initially issued uniform #6. And able historians of the game are immediately aware of the little detail in Yankee annals. But for full corroboration, we offer this 1951 regular season program; sure enough – there, on the scorecard, is the preprinted identity listing “6 Mantle r.f.” leading off. And, as to be expected, … “Batting fourth, centerfielder … number 5, Joe … Di-MAGgiooooo!” This is a marvelous program, one that remains in VG condition with some notable tape repairs on the verso. Hosting the Detroit Tigers, we note that it is scored in pencil with the date of the game noted in pen – June 15, 1951.
Overall, clean and firmly bound, this is piece is requisite to the worthy Yankee collection.
