A high-quality reproduction based on Dave Hobrecht's original charcoal and pastel portrait painting of all time great New York Yankees star and baseball Hall of Famer, Mickey Mantle in his 1951 rookie season. Mantle is largely considered the greatest switch hitter in Major League history. The Mick entered the league in 1951, the same year as Willie Mays, and both were the original five-tool players, hitting for average and power, with speed, a great arm and defensive range in centerfield. In an 18-year career cut short by injuries, Mantle still managed to sock 536 HRs, 2415 Hits and 1509 RBI with career averages of .291, .421 OBP and .557 slugging. Available in Black.
