Like we said last week, we saw some amazing stuff in Baltimore at the National Sports Collectors Convention. Today we've got some shots of a pair of cleats worn by Mickey Mantle in his first year in the big leagues.
In a post commemorating Mantle's retirement awhile back, we mentioned how he wore # 6 for a brief period in 1951. Check out the inside of these cleats.
Somone, perhaps Mickey himself, added the seven next to his name after he switched from # 6 to # 7.
Pretty cool, don't you think?
