NOTES:
 
   The Official Mickey Mantle Baseball Action Game was made by the Kohner Brothers, of 155 Wooster St., New York, NY. Originally named the Kohner Toy Company, they produced  simple string bead, wooden pull toys, and their flagship swinging clown. in 1947 the company bought a patent and produced Push Button Puppets, which became the company's most popular, and profitable product. In 1957 the company started to manufacture the Mickey Mantle Baseball Action Game no. 425, which had a suggested retail price of $1.00.

  The actual 'hand held' game measures approximately 6" x 4," and 3" tall, to the top of the uniform number 7 batter. The game was available with a white plastic playing field, as well as a clear plastic version. After the ball attached with a string is placed on the wire hitting stand, the game is played by pushing the spring-loaded 'plunger' to make "Mickey" swing and hit the ball. The ball would then land in one of the compartments on the plastic baseball diamond which has specific value of each hit; single, double, triple, home run, or an out. The game is played in 9 innings, 3 outs a side, as in regular baseball.

 The front of the red box features a blue-tone photo of Mickey Mantle in his Yankee uniform, in a left-handed batting pose. Two of the side panels picture the game. The end panels feature a blue baseball bat with a his 1950's style Mickey Mantle facsimile autograph. The bottom features instructions and the playing rules.
