Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris Signed Baseball

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,057.50

Official National League (Feeney) ball signed by Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris together on a side panel. Mantle’s signature, penned in blue ink, is the stronger of the two (grading “9”) and includes the added inscription “No. 7” below his name. Maris’ black-ink signature appears directly below Mantle’s and although it is somewhat faded (grading “4”) it remains clearly legible. Balls signed by the legendary “M&M Boys” have always been highly prized by collectors and remain quite scarce. This ball is especially noteworthy for the fact that they have each signed the same panel (a very rare occurrence), thus making this ball particularly ideal for display. When Mantle signed this ball, it was probably already signed by Maris, perhaps years earlier (the Maris signature appears much older) and it is likely that he was specifically asked to sign on the same panel as Maris for display. The ball displays some light soiling and light scattered toning throughout and is otherwise in Excellent condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,057.50
