The Mick started in the minor leagues in 1949 but just two short years later, Mantle was playing in the Major Leagues for the New York Yankees. Quickly rising to the top, The Commerce Comet was named to his first All-Star team in 1952, just one year after debuting.
The 1950s and 60’s belonged to this MLB Great. With seven World Series titles, Mickey Mantle did what few can ever accomplish. In 1956 Mantle became the first player to win the coveted Triple Crown title while leading the American League in hits, home runs and RBIs. Joining the ranks of another Yankee Great, Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle forever left a mark on the famed Yankees franchise.
