8. Mickey Mantle
With 536 Home Runs Mantle sits 17th All Time. He won the Triple Crown in 1956 and won 7 World Series with the Yankees. His .421 OBP is 16th All Time and was a 3 time AL MVP, if there was an accolade to be had Mantle was able to achieve it during his spectacular career. His one Gold Glove came in 1962 a year after he and teammate Roger Maris dueled for Babe Ruth’s single Home Run record.
Many other may have folded under the pressure of replacing Joe DiMaggio in Center Field, but Mantle made his name and was able to build an incredible legacy of his own. While DiMaggio was better with the glove, I’ll make the argument that Mantle was able to slightly surpass him at the plate. Either way, Mickey Mantle and his talents will never be forgotten.
