Mickey Mantle Signed and Notarized Display Sheets (10)
Starting Bid - $800.00, Sold For - $1,972.00
Collection of ten identical display sheets, each signed flawlessly in black marker ("10") by Mickey Mantle in Texas on September 9, 1990, and fully notarized. Each 8 x 10-inch sheet features Mantle's lifetime statistics and major achievements printed above a large rectangular box in which Mantle has provided his signature. The signing of these sheets was arranged by a company that had contracted with Mantle to produce guaranteed-authentic Mantle-signed display pieces. The sheets were designed so that either a card or small photo of Mantle could be affixed in the upper left corner and displayed as is, or the entire sheet could be matted and framed together with a large photo of Mantle (leaving only the signature visible after the framing process). Unfortunately, the company had barely begun marketing these sheets before financial difficulties forced them to discontinue their sale. These ten sheets were among those that were signed by Mantle but never sold from this marketing project. Obviously, the sheets remain perfectly suited for their original purpose, as well as offering tremendous "break value." Each sheet is in Mint condition and has been officially notarized, with the date of the Mantle's signing ("Sept. 9, 1990") duly noted above the notary's signature. LOAs from James Spence/JSA and Steve Grad, Mike Gutierrez & Zach Rullo/PSA DNA. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $1,972.00
