A nice rare authentic Mickey Mantle Waite-staff Uniform autographed in permanent felt tip marker "Mickey Mantle" on the verso, Size: Small, made by the Nostalgia Co. Mitchell & Ness Philadelphia, PA for and used at the the original Mickey Mantle's Restaurant opened in New York City for 24 years from 1988 and now recently closed in 2012.
It was very clever marketing to revive and employ the famous vintage Yankees pinstripe jersey uniform which was the nostalgic signature mark of a bygone golden era in baseball of which Mickey Mantle was a robust and historic part. This rare signed jersey uniform would make an impressive gift or addition to any fine collection.
Mickey Mantle's Restaurant Background:
(Quoted From Metro.US)
The restaurant was named after the famous Yankees center fielder, and, before he died in 1995, Mantle was often spotted inside, where he would eat, drink and provide free autographs for customers.
"We went there for my brother's elementary school graduation," recalled Brooklynite Greg Hanlon, 31, who grew up in the city. "He wasn't there, but my grandmother went back weeks later and waited outside for Mickey Mantle just so she could get autographs for us."
"The restaurant was a connection to a very special, mythical era when New York was the capital of baseball," he said.
The eatery was next to the St. Mortiz Hotel, now the Ritz-Carlton, where Mantle lived while he was in New York City.
The restaurant was decorated with sports memorabilia and a mural of old Yankee stadium.
Fans had rallied to raise $1 million to save the restaurant earlier this year, but it wasn't enough to keep it going.
