Lot 412: Mickey Mantle Career Ring with Ring Box
Feast your eyes on this glittering, 10K-gold Mickey Mantle career ring, part of a series created by Balfour. There's a large blue stone on the front, with Mantle’s number “7” inlaid with six diamonds. "Mantle" and the years 1951 and 1968 adorn the top and bottom (representing the span of his career). Yankee Stadium is depicted on one shank, along with The Mick's signature. Below the stadium design reads: "#7 Retired 6-8-69.” On the opposite shank is a collection of five bats depicting many of Mantle’s career accomplishments. Chief among these is “536 Home Runs,” which is atop the five bats. The ring, which bears the engraving “095/536” on the inside, is in MT condition and is accompanied by its original wooden presentation case, measuring 3.5x3.5." The ring is a size 9. Mantle - a 20-time All-Star and seven-time World Champion - is regarded as the greatest switch-hitter of all time.
