Lot # 539 (of 1411)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

Signed 1953 Bowman #44 Berra, Bauer, and Mantle

Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $2,610.00

1953 Bowman baseball card #44 (Berra/ Bauer/Mantle) signed in vintage ballpoint by all three players on the front. Mantle's signature grades "7/8"; those of Berra and Bauer each grade "7." As autograph collectors are well aware, Mantle's signature style changed over the years and ideal "rookie" era signatures such as that found on this card are particularly rare. This is one of the most classic of all 1950s multiplayer bubble-gum cards. Very few examples exist signed by all three, let alone with vintage 1950s signatures. The card itself has been encapsulated and graded VG/EX 4 by SGC. This is an exceptional signed-card rarity, penned Berra, Bauer, and "The Mick" in just his third season in the Majors. LOAs from James Spence/JSA and Steve Grad, Mike Gutierrez & Zach Rullo/PSA DNA. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $2,610.00
