Billy Crystal once said he wanted to be Mickey Mantle. Now the actor and comedian has a chance to at least catch like the New York Yankees outfield legend.
Crystal bought one of Mantle's old gloves at auction Monday for $239,000. The Hall of Famer wore the glove during a game around 1960. The glove had a presale estimate of $20,000.
It was part of Sotheby's Barry Halper Collection of Baseball Memorabilia auction.
