Number 7, Forever –

June 17, 2020 – Now, an incredible note written by the Yankees slugger just hit the auction block at Lelands … and what Mick wrote is pretty powerful. “I want to dedicate this book to all my friends. Old, new & especially young friends. Please don’t do alcohol & drugs. I never did drugs but alcohol hurt my career terribly,” Mantle wrote.

Lelands says it’s unclear exactly who or what the letter was for … but they’ve authenticated the piece, and it’s legit.

Mickey also seems to answer an age-old debate — who was a better ballplayer — Willie Mays, Duke Snider or MM.

“People used to ask who was better? Willie, Mickey or Duke. I think you have to look at final statistics and Willie was far ahead at the end.”
