About the book
In The Classic Mantle, acclaimed sportswriter Buzz Bissinger tells the story of Mickey Mantle’s unforgettable career. Mantle has long been considered one of baseball’s most memorable figures—playing his entire 18-year baseball career for the New York Yankees (1951–68), winning 3 American League MVP titles, playing in 20 All-Star games, and winning 7 World Series. Today, more than 40 years after his retirement, he still holds 6 World Series records, including most home runs (18). Bissinger goes beyond the statistics to bring Mantle to life, and stunning photographs by Marvin E. Newman make this book a fitting tribute to Mantle’s career and his lasting impact on the sport of baseball.

Praise for The Classic Mantle:

“Even if you're a Yankee hater, you can't help but love this book—and Mickey Mantle.” —The Buffalo News
