NOTES:
 
   After announcing his retirement in March of 1969, the Yankees made plans to honor Mickey Mantle with a special day. On June 8, 1969 New York's Mayor Lindsey declared it Mickey Mantle Day, and the New York Yankees ceremoniously retired the number 7 worn by Mantle. Several souvenir items were produced to commemorate the occasion, including special programs, pennants, and buttons. The buttons were sold attached to a pennant and sold separately through souvenir vendors in, and outside Yankee Stadium.

 This black & white pin back button features Mickey Mantle in a right-handed batting pose wearing his Yankees road jersey. The words “Mickey Mantle Day, June 8, 1969” is arched at the top of the pin. The pin measures 1¾ inches in diameter, and has "Mickey Mantle" in print along the rim. Reproduction or "Fantasy pins" shown below right, are commonly found on eBay selling for about $10. These 4" buttons using the Sport Magazine name, were manufactured in great quantities sometime in the 1980's. The pin was originally issued with black letters and gray 7s on the side, but the more common variation features all white letters.
