Mickey used a few different gloves early in his career. He basically used a Rawlings Baseball gloves. He started with the HH model (Harvey Haddix) before Rawlings signed him to a contract. 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. Over the years the gloves were slightly altered to Mantles liking. Models include MMP, and XPG6 gloves. Later in his career when he moved to first base he used a Spalding model glove.
