These signers led their league in home runs, runs batted in and batting average in one season, thus affording each of them the batting Triple Crown. MICKEY MANTLE (1931-1995), a New York Yankees slugger from 1951 to 1968, won the Triple Crown in 1956 and a World Series Grand Slam in 1953. He had a career batting average of .298 with 536 home runs and 1,509 career RBIs. The switch-hitting "Commerce Comet" accumulated a long list of accomplishments, including three MVP awards and a Triple Crown (1956). He contributed to 12 pennants and seven World Series titles in his first 14 seasons while establishing numerous World Series records, including most home runs (18). He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1974. FRANK ROBINSON (1935-2019) was National League Rookie of the Year in 1956, Most Valuable Player in 1961, and American League Most Valuable Player and Triple Crown winner in 1966. He led the Orioles to an upset sweep of the Dodgers in the Orioles' first-ever World Series in 1966, gaining World Series MVP honors in the process. The 11-time All-Star became Major League Baseball's first black manager with the Cleveland Indians in 1975. Robinson was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1982. TED WILLIAMS (1918-2002), the last player to hit .400 (.406 in 1941), won two Triple Crowns, two MVP awards and six American League batting championships, hit 521 home runs, had a lifetime average of .344 and appeared in 18 All-Star games. CARL YASTRZEMSKI (b.1939) replaced Ted Williams, shown here, in left field for the Boston Red Sox in 1961 and followed him into the Hall of Fame in 1989. When he retired after 23 years (1961-1983), Yastrzemski ranked first in career games (3,308), third in at-bats (11,988) and walks (1,845), sixth in total bases (5,539), seventh in hits (3,419) and doubles (646), and ninth in RBI (1,844).He was the first American League player with both 3,000 hits and 400 homers. Although he won three batting titles, played in 18 All-Star games, and was acknowledged as the finest defensive left fielder of his time, "Yaz" will be primarily remembered by Red Sox fans for his Triple Crown/MVP 1967 season. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 24¾x38½.
