Complete collection of World Series tickets from each of the sixteen games in which Mickey Mantle hit a home run. Mantle, of course, still holds the World Series record for home runs with eighteen and a complete assembly of ticket stubs from each of his home-run games has been an extremely popular quest for collectors (Mantle hit two home runs in two of the games; therefore the collection is complete at sixteen tickets). Eight of the tickets have been encapsulated by PSA and certified as "Authentic," with one of those also having been graded by the company (each duly noted in our listing). It should also be noted that Mantle's eighth World Series home run occurred during Don Larsen's perfect game, making that ticket stub especially significant. The sixteen tickets in this collection, in order of home runs, is as follows: 1) 1952 Dodgers Game 6; HR #1; Vg, with light creasing. 2) 1952 Dodgers Game 7; HR #2; Vg, with light creasing and tiny amount of paper loss on reverse. 3) 1953 Yankees Game 2; HR #3; Gd, with moderate-to-heavy creasing. 4) 1953 Dodgers Game 5; HR #4; Vg, with light creasing and toning. 5) 1955 Dodgers Game 3; HR #5, PSA encapsulated; Gd, with creasing and tape residue on the edges. 6) 1956 Dodgers Game 1; HR #6; Fr-Gd, with writing on the front, adhesive residue and surface paper loss on front, and adhesive residue on reverse. 7) 1956 Yankees Game 4; HR #7; PSA encapsulated; Gd, with creasing as well as staining and surface paper loss on the reverse. 8) 1956 Yankees Game 5; HR #8; Larsen's perfect game; PSA encapsulated; Vg, with creasing. 9) 1957 Braves Game 3; HR #9; Vg, with light creasing and tiny abrasion on front. 10) 1958 Braves Game 2; HR # 10 and 11; Fr-Gd, with heavy creasing and writing on reverse. 11) 1960 Pirates Game 2; HR # 12 and 13; encapsulated by PSA; Vg, with light creasing. 12) 1960 Yankees Game 3; HR # 14; Vg, with moderate creasing. 13) 1963 Dodgers Game 4; HR #15; Vg, with light creasing. 14) 1964 Yankees Game 3; HR #16 (passes Babe Ruth for all-time record); encapsulated by PSA; Vg, with light creasing. 15) 1964 St. Louis Game 6; HR #17; encapsulated by PSA; Vg, with staple holes on top and bottom border. 16) 1964 St. Louis Game 7; HR #18; encapsulated by PSA and graded Vg-Ex 4.
