Mickey Mantle was one of the greatest players in the history of baseball. His professional baseball career spanned from 1948-1969, where he was a 20-time All-Star, 7-time Word Series Champ, 3-time AL MVP, 4-time home run leader and Hall of Famer.

Mantle had his fair share of exploits and troubles off the Field. This was mostly due to the fact that he liked two things almost as much as he liked baseball, booze and women. He was never shy about his marital affairs, or his morning booze which he dubbed, “The Breakfast of Champions”

In an infamous letter from 1972, the Yankees asked former players to recall their favorite memories at the stadium.

“I got a b–w job under the right field bleachers by the Yankee bullpen,” Mantle wrote in response to a question about his favorite experience at Yankee Stadium.

A follow-up question prompted as much detail as one could provide about said favorite moment.

“It was about the third or fourth inning,” Mantle wrote. “I had a pulled groin and couldn’t f–k at the time. She was a very nice girl and asked me what to do with the c-m after I c–e in her mouth. I said don’t ask me, I’m no c–ksucker.”

Longtime former Yankees executive Marty Appel confirmed the questionnaire’s authenticity, but not necessarily the event in question.

“The item is authentic, but the intent was bawdy humor, not depiction of a real event. I called Mick when I received it and said, ‘We’re going with the Barney Schultz home run in 1964’ and he laughed and said ‘Of course.’ I held the letter for decades (never showed Bob Fishel), finally gave it to Barry Halper, and from there it slipped off to others over time.”
