Default Mickey Mantle photo...

Hey all,

I was wondering if anyone on the boards had won this photo from Legendary Auctions May 2010 extravaganza:



With this being the actual auction link:

The image depicts Mantle crossing third base after hitting the second of his titanic home runs against USC that day. Though we can't track down the exact information as to how far both of the blasts went, the ranges have been anywhere from 550 to 660 feet. Yikes. Jane Leavy does a wonderful job researching the game in her book 'The Last Boy', but if you'd like to read more about it on the Interwebz, check it out:

Obviously, I would probably kill to get a high-res scan of this for a painting. And obviously, I'd be more than willing to pay for getting said scan. I know it's a long-shot and all, but I figured if anyone on planet earth won this thing, he/she might be on Net54. Woot!

Either way, hope everyone's having a wonderful week!

Thought I'd bump this in the hopes that it's out there somewhere!
