Product Description

This is a must have for Mantle fans! A one of a kind autographed display that gives tribute to the longest home run ever hit in baseball history. No home run carries the lore of the blast Mickey Mantle hit on April 17, 1953 at Griffith Stadium, the one that still to this day stands in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest home run ever hit. The 21 year old center fielder connected on a belt high fastball, the blast kept soaring, like a shooting star in the sky. The ball actually broke the confines of Griffith Stadium. It is documented that the ball traveled over 565 ft. in the air! It was retrieved by "Red" Patterson, the Yankees public relations man. Red retrieved the ball from a 10-year-old boy named Donald Dunaway, who stood with the ball in his hands in the backyard of 434 Oakdale Lane in a neighborhood across the street from Griffith Stadium beyond the center field confines.

 

This tremendous autographed display was purchased directly from Greer Johnson through her personal attorney. The signed 8x10 signed photograph actually has the Greer Johnson corporate seal of authenticity embossed on the top left corner of the photograph, displayed in the 3rd picture above. Now we move on to the photograph displayed on top, this extraordinary photograph is 14x17 in size and originated from the Associated Press Wide World Photo, it was printed from the original negative which is very expensive to have done. It is an extremely scarce photo depicting the young 21 year old Mantle circa-1953 holding up the exact ball he hit over 565 ft. at Griffith Stadium. The Autographed Display is a great conversation piece, depicting The Mick admiring the tremendous damage he delivered to the baseball with that infamous home run. This is truly a great piece of baseball history and a tribute to the longest home run ever hit. The display comes professionally framed and matted in an absolutely gorgeous frame with an overall size of 36x21 inches. The logos in the framework are all hand carved by a very talented custom framer. The framework is done in high quality suede and framed with a very unique wood. This would make a beautiful centerpiece to an office or lobby.
