The late, great Mickey Mantle is a legend in New York Yankees and Major League Baseball history, and his memorabilia is still raking in cash in 2022.
In November, Mantle’s signed and handwritten Yankees questionnaire, which features details of oral sex he said he received at Yankee Stadium, was put on auction by Lelands. The auction officially ended Dec. 10, and the letter sold for a whopping $242.788.80.
The 1972 questionnaire asked New York players, including Mantle, about their “most outstanding” experience at Yankee Stadium, with the second question asking the players to provide as much detail as possible. In what was supposed to be a family-friendly questionnaire to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Yankee Stadium, Mantle described oral sex he received from a “very nice girl” under the “right field bleachers.”
“I got (oral sex) under the right field bleachers by the Yankees bull pen,” Mantle wrote in his response. “It was about the third or fourth inning. I had a pulled groin and couldn’t f— at the time. She was a very nice girl.”
In 1972, the Yankees asked former players for their most outstanding experience at Yankee Stadium.
Mickey Mantle’s response was so lewd and graphic it could never be printed.
