December 11,
1959-The
Kansas City A's Owner Arnold Johnson gives the Yankees an early Christmas present,
when he gift-wraps a young OF Roger Maris in yankee pinstripes. The Yankees
acquired the young slugger in a 7-player deal that sends veterans Pitcher Don
Larsen and RF Hank Bauer, young Yankees 1B/OF Marv Throneberry, and LF
Norm Siebern to the A⁈⁚s. It would be Yankees GM George Weiss, last
major trade before leaving the team in October of 1960. Also the
Yankees received veteran INF Joe DeMasteri and 1B/OF Kent Hadley in the
Roger Maris trade. They would be reserve players for the Yankees bench
in 1960.

My sister bought me that Mantle card for Christmas about 30 years ago. The year before she bough me a cracked Mantle, autographed bat, that he used in one of those fantasy camps he and Whitey used to run in Fla.
