Road gray jersey has "Mets" team name lettered across the front in scripted logo font. This team name appears to be of the period and team issued but is a replacement for the original "New York" lettering which would have been on a 1972 jersey.

Period skyline logo patch on left sleeve. In the collar is a "45 44 72" embroidered strip tag denoting player, size, and year. "Wilson" manufacturer's tag on front tail lists the size, "44."

See a Picture of this Item 474 1971 Gil Hodges New York Mets professional model home Manager's jersey. Gil Hodges took over the reigns of a struggling New York Mets club in 1968 and lead them to a 9th place finish in the National League. Under normal circumstances this would be no notable feat, however the Mets, in their short existence to that point, had redefined poor play, not once finishing a season in anything better than dead last place. In 1969 he did what most thought was unthinkable piloting the "Miracle Mets" to a World Series Championship and he would remain at the helm for another two seasons. Pinstriped home flannel jersey has "Mets" team name lettered across the front in scripted logo font with number "14" below. Number also appears on back and a Mets skyline logo patch is present on left sleeve. "Spalding Professional" manufacturer's tag on front tail with adjacent size "46" and year "71" tags.

See a Picture of this Item 475 Casey Stengel New York Mets professional model road Manager's jersey c.1962-1965. Having pieced together one of the great 20th Century Managerial careers as skipper of the New York Yankees, Casey Stengel was set to retire at close of the 1960 season with (10) League titles and (7) World Series Championships to his credit. As fate would have it the National League expanded in 1962 and the newly formed New York Mets had cobbled together an assemblage of questionable talent who displayed nothing but a dire need of leadership. A beloved New York icon, Stengel was the perfect fit and signed on for the inaugural season bringing his quick wit and considerable skill. The club went on to post a dismal 40-120 record and would continue in kind, never once fairing better than a last place finish in each of his (4) seasons but the fans still came in droves. "Come see my Amazin Mets" he said "see new ways to lose I never knew existed before." Important and highly desirable all original flannel jersey is tagged as made for the 1962 season and was later prepared for use in 1964. Few jerseys can be attributed to such a significant span of time in a Hall of Fame career.

On the reverse, over area where darker finish handle meets blond barrel, there is a diminutive vintage ink signature reading, "To Brad, Best Wishes, Mickey Mantle." The signature has largely faded from view but does serve the extremely desirable purpose of placing this bat directly in Mantle's hands in the period; a trait very few pieces related to a player of his caliber can offer. Hitting for both average and power through all of his (18) seasons in baseball Mickey Mantle established himself as one of the games' greatest sluggers. He was named Most Valuable Player of the American League (3) times, won the Triple Crown in 1956, and played on (7) Championship teams. In total Mantle enjoyed (20) All-Star Game appearances, a feat topped only by Aaron, Musial, and Mays. Statistics aside, there is a lore which surrounds his name that few others can conjure up. Intangibles which can not be charted in box scores or accounted for in the myriad of other ways ability is measured. Outstanding rarity which having been signed in the period places this exemplar within the top echelon of Mantle game bats of its type.

Fine content letter mailed on May 2, 1947 from Brooklyn, New York, just seventeen days after his April 15th debut in the Major Leagues.

Reads in part, "Dear Charles, I want to thank you and the others...I am really glad to have received just such a letter. No I was not surprised to receive a letter from the South because there are many more Southerners who share the same feelings you have and I am sure that it will be fellows like yourselves that will go a long way in furthering the democratic way of life most of us want." Signed at close, "Sincerely, Jackie Robinson." Having been stored within its original mailing envelope, the letter has typical light horizontal fold at center and a touch of minimal wear. Fountain pen signature/handwriting rate strong 8/9 out of 10.
