In The Classic Mantle, acclaimed sportswriter Buzz Bissinger tells the story of Mickey Mantle's unforgettable career.

Mantle has long been considered one of baseball's most memorable figures-playing his entire 18-year baseball career for the New York Yankees (1951-68), winning 3 American League MVP titles, playing in 20 All-Star games, and winning 7 World Series.

Today, more than 40 years after his retirement, he still holds 6 World Series records, including most home runs (18).

Bissinger goes beyond the statistics to bring Mantle to life, and stunning photographs by Marvin E.

Newman make this book a fitting tribute to Mantle's career and his lasting impact on the sport of baseball.
