Mantle used Rawlings gloves. (and maybe a Spalding baseman's mitt but that was made by Rawlings anyway.) That's common knowledge. He used different model numbers but basically the same glove in the 60's. A few were sold at auction (the 60's types XPG gloves) and the 50's is in the hall of fame now. There's a gentleman in Pittsburgh who has Mantle's gloves. Why do you want to know?If you're looking to buy then I suggest you save up about 1/4 million bucks because that's what the 60's ones sell for. The 50's one in the HOF would probably be much more than that.

AnswerHe generally wore the spalding xpg pro. However, I have an 8x11 picture of him and Roger Maris together in the home dugout. He is wearing a Spalding. Has his name hand printed down the thumb. Answermickey mantle used a rawlings mit. he started with the HH model "Harvey Haddix" before mantle himself had a contract with rawlings to make his own model. his first personal model was a MM 50's model it was the same as the HH model he had been using now with his name on the glove. then he went to a MMP model and it is basicly the same as the MM only the thumb on the glove is longer its now even with the rest of the fingers instead of being a little shorter. now comes the XPG6 he used in the 60's two models here also. the first and second are about the same. heres the diff. the early had his block signaure old style and the thumb of the glove has a two strip leather adjustment top outside. also the top of the fingers are crossed laced along he top of the fingers. the lattter glove has his more known signature looping M's no thumb adj. and now the top of the lacing on the fingers is X lace meaning it was a new and stronger lacing tech. that madethe fingers hold together better after that when he went to first base it is said he used a spaulding but most top of the line spauldings were made by rawlings. that's why most of the 60's rawlings spuladings glove are very similar. I've never seen a picture of him wearing a spaulding though. so after he went to first it a gray area for me. store model mantle gloves just like the ones he used are out there look on eBay the MM model's sell for 600 plus in really good condition the MMP about 400 plus and the XPG6 250 to some even out pacing the MMP around 350 for really nice models

The Rawlings MMF Mickey Mantle Fastback Baseball glove is a mid ranged priced glove. In very good condition they sell for about $50.- $60. and $100.-$150. in excellent to near/mint condition. As with all collectibles condition is most important on the value providing that the item is authentic.

Common flaws with Gloves are: loose or broken lacing/webbing, Dry or cracking leather, ripped or missing manufacturer label, worn printing/player endorsement on the glove, and the name of the owner of the glove hand written on it. All or any will effect the value.

The MMF Mickey Mantle Fastback baseball glove sold for $16.95 in 1968 as shown in the advertising at the link I left below. Advertisments like this are a great way of dating your memorabilia. They are also great to display with the glove, and might add value when selling the glove. I will also leave a link for further information on other Mickey Mantle baseball gloves.

How can you find out what model glove Mickey Mantle wore during his 1956 season?

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.At the baseball Hall Of Fame in Cooperstown a glove used by Mickey Mantle during Don Larsen's perfect World Series game in 1956 is on display. This is a Rawlings Model HH.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.

Rawlings HH and HSP models were issued to many outfielders at the time. The first MM (Mickey Mantle) model was designed after the HH model.

How many different Rawlings baseball gloves had the Mickey Mantle facsimile signature on them?

Mickey Mantle was "a member of the Rawlings Advisory Staff" which basically means he endorsed a lot of baseball gloves for Rawlings. The exact number of baseball glove models Mantle endorsed for Rawlings might be difficult to find. Mantle endorsed Fielders gloves, first base, and catchers mitts, but I'm not sure if the later was a Rawlings glove endorsement. Below I will keep a running list of Mickey Mantle endorsed baseball gloves, including MM1 adult model to MM9 youth models.

How much is a Mickey Mantle glove worth?

A Mickey Mantle signed baseball glove is worth about $500.-$1,200. Value is based on average prices of recently closed auctions. Prices may vary based condition of the glove, glove model, placement, and condition of the signature, how well the glove displays the signature, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Signatures that have not been properly authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. Mickey Mantle was under contact with the Upper Deck company before he passed away. A Mickey Mantle signed glove in near/mint condition authenticated by Upper Deck could sell in the $1,500. -$2,000. price range. In a recent auction (March 2008) a Mickey Mantle youth model glove signed on the outside webbing sold for $478. Another auction (Dec. 2007) a Mickey Mantle signed (outside finger) Rawlings MM6 glove sold for $1,075.
