As close as most of us will ever get to the big league experience, annual fantasy camps allow ardent followers to suit up in the locker room, sit in the dugout, take the field and do the best they can against soft-tossing opponents of the same caliber. One New York Yankees dreamer hit a “home run” as he got his jersey signed by none other than Mickey Mantle! Framed to 29-3/4 x 5-3/4”, this white knit pinstriped ensemble was worn at a camp in 1991. The jersey is displayed to show the back where (appropriately) Mantle’s number “7” is sewn in blue twill (and we’re guessing that a lot of players in that camp wore number “7”). Just below the numeral, Mantle has signed in blue marker (“7-8” strength). While the autograph was undoubtedly the highlight of the fan’s endeavor, it appears that he did enjoy some activity on the diamond, as the pants have scattered dirt stains. Accompanying is a full photo LOA from JSA.
