Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris Signed Limited-Edition Bat
Starting Bid - $2,000.00, Sold For - $8,812.50
Presented is a pristine example of the Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris signed limited-edition H&B bat produced in 1984 to commemorate their historic 1961 season. This is the most revered of all Mantle-Maris signed items. For many collectors, this bat represents the ultimate Mantle/Maris signed display piece and its limited production has resulted in its extreme rarity today. The unique design of the bat features both players’ facsimile signatures stamped, respectively, on either side of the barrel, below which are listed their home run totals for the 1961 season. Only 115 of these bats were ever produced and the extremely well-documented signing of them by Mantle and Maris was considered an historic event at the time. This is the one Mantle-Maris signed item that without even seeing everyone knows is real. The offered bat is numbered "78 of 115" and features the blue Sharpie signatures of Mantle and Maris scripted directly below their respective barrel stamping. The Mantle signature is exceptionally bold, grading "10," while the Maris signature grades a strong "8.5." The bat measures 35 inches in length and is in Near Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $2,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $8,812.50
