    1950s. Looks like rodeo photos on the wall behind which makes one suspect Texas.

    Is it the fellow on the left who's supposed to be Mickey Mantle?

    The lady next to him ought to be his wife Merlyn. (or his wife at the time?) I can't see her well enough to be sure.

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    I don't see enough resemblance to Mickey Mantle. The image is very difficult to see, but the guy on the left is the only one who is even in the general ballpark (unintended pun!) of the right age. And even he looks a little older. Also, the man in the photo appears to have a slight "widow's peak" in the hair in the middle of his forehead. Mantle doesn't appear to have one.

    Mickey Mantle was born in 1931. This photo appears to be from the 1940s or 1950s.

    @steve richards what is the provenance of this image? Are you sure it is Mickey Mantle? If so, what is or are the resources that tell you this?

    Can you take a better, sharper, reflection-free photo of the faces, and wall behind them?

    Can you get a shot of it outside the plastic envelope.Is the scribbling on the plastic some kind of copyright protection ?

    I think that's a snarky "Brooklyn Bridge for sale" joke.
