Legendary Auctions Sells Mantle’s Record Setting 1964 World Series Jersey for a Record $675,000

Legendary Auctions is proud to announce the recently completed private sale of Mickey Mantle’s 18th World Series Home Run Jersey for $675,000—the highest price ever paid for a Mantle gamer. The Mick donned this very road jersey for his historic, record-setting, final October homer, belted off St. Louis Cardinals fireballer Bob Gibson in Game 7 of the 1964 Fall Classic.

Like Cy Young’s 511 wins, Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak and Cal Ripken Jr.’s 2,632 consecutive games, Mickey Mantle’s milestone of 18 World Series homers is untouchable, insurmountable, never to be broken. Indeed, even if a modern player somehow managed to match Mantle’s incredible 12 World Series appearances, it would still be virtually impossible to replicate the high-octane slugging performance of averaging 1.5 clutch round-trippers per Fall Classic.

The 18th Home Run Jersey boasts impeccable provenance, having been acquired directly from a Yankee clubhouse attendant and then stowed away for the past nearly half-century…until now. Sourced by Spencer Lader, a New York Sports Memorabilia Consultant, Legendary Auctions worked closely with him and MEARS Authentication to nail down this historic item. Ultimately, through photo-documented analysis of the distinctive serif-style uniform number 7 (in contrast to the sans-serif numerals of the regular season), it became clear beyond a shadow of doubt that Mantle made the most lasting mark of his illustrious career while wearing none other than this rarefied roadster—which now forms a cornerstone of our East Coast buyer’s elite memorabilia collection.
