    Book details

In The Classic Mantle, Mickey Mantle's unforgettable story will be told by Buzz Bissinger and accompanied by the intimate photographs of Marvin E. Newman, who was one of the only sports photographers shooting in colour at this time in Yankee's history and can provide unique and intimate photos of Mantle in his heyday. Mickey Mantle has long been regarded as one of baseball's most memorable figures, not only for his outstanding athleticism, but also for the lasting mark he left on the game. Mantle played his entire 18-year baseball career for the New York Yankees (1951-1968). In that time, he won 3 American League MVP titles and played in 20 All-Star games. Mantle appeared in 12 World Series, winning 7 of them. He still holds the records for most World Series home runs (18), RBIs (40), runs (42), walks (43), extra-base hits (26), and total bases (123). He won the Triple Crown in 1956 and is regarded by many to be the greatest switch hitter of all time, an opinion that was celebrated upon his election into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1974. And this book will serve as a tribute to his tremendous career and the lasting impression he left on baseball.
