Mickey Mantle’s notorious 1972 signed and handwritten “lewd” Yankees questionnaire and a magnificent “Mean” Joe Greene Steelers game-worn jersey from the team’s 1975 Super Bowl-winning season highlight the Lelands 2022 Fall Classic Auction, which runs through Dec. 10.

When asked by the Yankees to share in writing his favorite Yankee Stadium memory in advance of the stadium’s 50th anniversary celebration in 1973, Mantle did not recall an on-field moment or anything about baseball for that matter. Instead, in a jaw-dropping answer, Mantle revealed a sexual experience he had with a female fan during a game: “I got (oral sex) under the right field bleachers by the Yankee Bull Pen,” he wrote back.

The iconic Hall of Fame Yankees outfielder followed that up by providing specifics, in response to the second and last question, which asked respondents to note when the event occurred and to give as much detail as possible. “It was about the third or fourth inning,” Mantle added. “I had a pulled groin and couldn’t (bleep) at the time. She was a very nice girl…”

“Mean” Joe Greene Steelers game-used jerseys are exceedingly rare and the spectacular home jersey being offered here was worn by the legendary defensive tackle during the team’s Super Bowl-winning season of 1975. This jersey is truly a “Holy Grail” for Steelers and NFL Hall of Fame collectors.

The auction also features a Pop 1 Josh Allen NT RPA 2/3, an incredibly rare 2000 Playoff Contenders Football Championship Ticket Uncut Sheet with the record-setting Tom Brady rookie card, and the incredible Type I original photo of Jackie Robinson used for his 1947 Bond Bread Rookie Card.

Among other highlights are a Frank Robinson 1966 Orioles game-worn jersey from his MVP, Triple Crown and World Championship season, a Phil Rizzuto 1955 World Series game-used and signed bat PSA 10, a Harmon Killebrew 1964 home run game-used and signed bat, George Weiss’ 1951 Yankees World Series ring, and a Derek Jeter game-used 1995 rookie season bat.
