1955 Mickey Mantle game worn home flannel New York Yankees jersey. Autographed, this is one of the finest Mantle jersey’s known from his early years of his career. Manufactured by Spalding, this Yankees home pinstriped jersey was issued to Mantle for the 1955 season. Tagged exclusively for Mantle, it featured blue chain stitching on the front tail that reads `Mantle, 55-7` referencing the player, year of issue and uniform number. Every technical aspect of this uniform is as it was when Mantle wore it in 1955 with the exception of the number `7` on back having been professionally restored. This jersey retains superb visual appeal, demonstrating substantial, but not excessive usage wear. Mantle has signed the front of the jersey below the front tail tagging. In addition to the jersey`s outstanding physical traits, it is supported by no less than five different `photo matches`. Every Yankee pinstriped flannel garment of this era is as unique as a snowflake due to the variance of the pinstripe patterns each uniform featured. The alignment of the pinstripes on this jersey (most readily apparent at the seams of the shoulders, collar, and `NY` logo on front) provide exact matches to numerous photos of Mantle from 1955(see attached images). The most significant of these photo matches is an image of Mantle in the Yankee Stadium locker room after a game in which he is presenting a fan with a signed baseball in exchange for a ball he had hit for a 486-foot home run that day (shown). This photo, Scharfman, confirms this to be the only documented Mantle `home run jersey` we are aware of. LOA from MEARS (Grade A-7)
