Mickey might have used a few different gloves during the 1956 season. There is a discussion going on among "Glove experts" about a "Game used" glove on eBay that is a Rawlings Mickey Mantle model MM. It is believed that it is unlikely he used this model during the 1954-1956 seasons, rather he might have wore Rawlings HH and HSP models as issued to many outfielders at the time.
I will leave a link picturing the glove along with a link to the Vintage baseball glove forum that is discussing the 1956 era game used Mantle glove. This forum is also a good source to find info on baseball gloves in general.

You can either buy glove conditioner or use something like shaving creme. Lather the glove with the oil and then place a softball in the pocket of the glove and use a rubber band to hold the ball in place. Then you can do pretty much anything to work in the glove like sticking it under the leg of a sofa or use the glove as a base during sliding practice.
