MICKEY MANTLE'S SWITCH HITTER BATTING PRACTICE SET COMPLETE

Item: MICKEY MANTLE'S SWITCH HITTER BATTING PRACTICE SET COMPLETE
ITEM DESCRIPTION:
MICKEY MANTLE'S SWITCH HITTER BATTING PRACTICE SET COMPLETE IN BOX 50s-60s SUPER RARE. Here is a batting practice set/ game from the iconic New York Yankee Mickey Mantle. It is a remote controlled automatic mechanical set #2621. This was made by Irwin in the 50s or early 60s. The set is remarkably complete which includes plastic pitching machine marked Mickey Mantle Switch-Hitter. There is no damage to this machine and works when you draw back the spring arm releasing the ball. By design the spring/plunger is supposed to go all the way down and lock. Due to the age of the plastic I won't go that far in fear of damaging the old plastic. I went about half way and it does shoot the ball. Has the repro instruction sheet, three original white balls that have no damage, and pitching bulb that has dried up (due to age) and is stuck on the insert. It also has the air tube that helped to pitch the balls. Includes original box with facsimile picture of Mickey Mantle wearing Yankees cap and posing in left-handed batting stance. Box has insert but also has some wear with the top being a little pushed in. It's a rather large set at 16 x 12 - 1/2. If you were a big Yankee and Mickey Mantle fan like I was in the 50s and 60's this is a set that you need to have since it is rarely seen. Please ask any question that you may have. Thank you, Dave
