History doesn't come cheap. Case and point is this piece of American sports memorabilia - a 1962 Mickey Mantle Game Worn and autographed New York Yankees Cap, produced KM PRO.  There are a scant few surviving Mickey Mantle attributed pieces from the 1962 season. These fetch a considerable premium on the secondary market. The 1962 World Series was a rematch of Mantle's first. In the end of a fierce battle, the Yankees would be crowned as World Champions by the slimmest of margins, After a pair of second-place finishes to teammate Roger Maris in 1960 and 1961, the Mick claimed American League MVP honors for himself in 1962, the third and final time he'd earn the distinction as the Junior Circuit's employee of the year. Mantle's 1962 stat line thunders with the bold type of supremacy, most notably the .605 slugging average and 122 walks that document his extraordinary power and the fear that it instilled in opposing pitchers.  This size 7-1/4 cap features considerable game wear, including Mantle's player number 7 written on the underbill. This cap comes with a notarized letter of provenance from the son of Mantle's close friend Jerry Volpe details the history of the cap. In addition, it includes a LOA from Heritage Auctions. It is estimated value at auction is $20,000+. Got deep pockets? Head over to  https://sports.ha.com
