         Though I am a Sox fan, my first hero was Mickey Mantle. I hated watching The Mick disintegrate at the end of his career...from "65-"68. For this reason, I never hated the Yankees, until 1976, when they had obnoxious players like "Mick the Quick", Graig Nettles, and Thurman Munson (well...they were obnoxious to me). But, I never could bring myself to hate them in the 90s. I admired them, and liked the majority of their core players (Jeter, Tino Martinez, Mariano Rivera, Bernie Williams). The Yankees corp players were pretty much home grown. Now...I just dislike A-Rod and Tex! Anyway, their not so great "67 line-up, as I remember, was:

         2B Horace Clarke
         SS Ruben Amaro
         1B Mickey Mantle
         CF Joe Pepitone    
         LF Tom Tresh
         RF Steve Whitaker
          C  Jake Gibbs
         3B Charlie Smith
          P  Mel Stottlemyre, Fritz Peterson, Al Downing, Fred Talbot.

    Agreed about Mantle at the end, his legs in those days were terrible (yet went 6/8 in SBs that yr). But, he still had his moments, and FWIW, his 18 HRs are the 4th highest in history for a last season. That yr, I went to an OT game; the Yankees lost 3-2, but both runs were Mantle HRs, and the 2nd was a blistering shot that went over the 402 sign and into the distant LF bullpen; I was a happy kid that day.

     I too was a Major Mickey fan and if those 100s of Mantle cards I saved, as a kid, are not totally disinergrated by now, Somebody would have a fortune in Cards if they were to go to the dumping site where my mom deposited them after I joined the air force. 67 is when I became a Red Sox Fan because I thought the Yanks were forcing Mantle to play in order to get people to the games. I got to meet mantle a few years later at a card show, for only $50 !!  LOL

    Mantle transcends team lines for sure, he could crush the ball.   My favorite as a kid also ....

    Wasn't Bobby Cox on that team? Maybe late 60's early 70's

    Future HOF Mgr Bobby Cox, a "career minor leaguer", finally broke into the bigs for the Yankees in '68, started that yr at 3B (He had a good arm, shaky glove, resulting in some adventurous plays), and played 2 seasons.
