Best Worst Mickey Mantles, Part II

It’s time to expand the digital collection of the best worst Mickey Mantles. Some of these appear just mildly, colorfully marred–while others belong in a category specially reserved for the utterly wretched, shipwrecked, and weather-wracked. . . . And, again, if you happen to have a beautifully ruined Mickey Mantle that you’d like to share, then by all means please feel free to comment to this post with a link to your own poor Mickey Mantle.

Hey folks, I have a featured piece this week on Sports Collectors Digest! In case you’re new to SCD, it’s a great resource with some fun writing–and it’s an old haunt of Keith Olbermann’s, who was an occasional contributor for the publication. So that definitely made my day. In any case, you can read the Poor Mickey Mantle(s) essay here.
