Incredible replica Kansas City Blues minor league jersey that was created to commemorate Mickey Mantle's 1951 rookie season.  Unlike the very high-quality replica jerseys created today by the likes of Mitchell and Ness, this jersey was created using vintage flannel jerseys from the era.  This grey, road flannel is lettered "Kansas City" on the breast and the number 23 on the reverse, using navy blue felt to match the design of the era, and a vintage Wilson label and size 44 tag was stitched into the jersey.  Due to being a true vintage jersey, it does display considerable wear, including holes at the sams and repairs as well.  

The jersey originates from the Barry Halper collection, and Mantle signed and personalized the jersey inside the back collar, writing "To Barry, Best Wishes, Mickey Mantle."  

Unlike other signed Mantle memorabilia, this is a one-of-a-kind item, created not as a collectors item for sale, but as a unique piece designed on the part of a single collector to commemorate Mantle's minor league tenure during the 1951 season.  Made from vintage material and designed as an exact replica of Mantle's Kansas City Blues jersey, this is a high-quality display piece, signed by its subject and created as part of one of the most legendary collections in hobby lore.  Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
