1988 Mickey Mantle Signed AT&T Advertising Display
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $1,392.00
AT&T advertising poster featuring Mickey Mantle presents information about an AT&T-sponsored one-day event at Bridgewater Stadium in New Jersey held on March 4, 1988. This impressive 27.75 x 22-inch advertising poster features a spectacular black-and-white photo of Mantle at bat late and has been signed by the legendary Hall of Famer in black Sharpie just to the left of his image. While the signature has been flawlessly penned, grading "10," its most impressive characteristic is its size. Measuring over nine inches in length, it is certainly one of the largest and most ideal-for-display Mantle signature examples we have ever seen. These posters were limited to a print run of only 500, as they were only issued for a local New Jersey promotion. According to our consignor, he received five of these posters from a friend at the company and had all five personally signed by Mantle. While we cannot be certain, it is highly probable that the five posters once belonging to our consignor represent the only signed examples of this advertising piece. The offered poster represents the last of our consignor's five signed examples, with the other four each having been sold privately over the course of the past seventeen years. This was the finest of the five examples, which he had kept for display in his personal collection. The poster is in Excellent to Mint condition. Beautifully framed to total dimensions of 42 x 36 inches. LOAs from James Spence/JSA and Steve Grad, Mike Gutierrez & Zach Rullo/PSA DNA. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,392.00
