Mickey Mantle Signed Collection (14)
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $3,231.25
This collection of fourteen Mickey Mantle signed items, which includes both single-signed and multi-signed pieces, is highlighted by a large art poster designed in the style of a 1954 Topps baseball card. Mantle, because he was under contract to Bowman in 1954, was not included in the 1954 Topps set. This poster, produced by Geo Graphics and hand numbered 297/1,000 in the lower left, pictures what Mantle's Topps card would have looked like had he been included that classic 1954 issue. Signed by Mantle in blue Sharpie ("10"). The poster (24 x 36 inches) is printed on thick-paper stock and displays a number of light creases. Although technically in Very Good to Excellent condition, it presents as Excellent and is perfect for framing. Unless otherwise noted, all of the remaining items are in Near Mint condition and each of the signatures has been penned in blue Sharpie (grading "10) on the front of the piece. Single-Signed Items: 1) Promotional card (4 x 6 inches), issued in conjunction with the documentary Mickey Mantle: The American Dream Comes To Life , signed in silver paint pen. 2-5) Four non-vintage photos (three color, one black-and-white). Two of the color photos are identical images, while the black-and-white photo displays a few minor creases in the corners. 6) 1989 Ron Lewis Living Legends art card of Mantle, numbered 1380/5000. 7-8) Two enlarged black-and-white copies of 1950s-era Rawlings Mickey Mantle glove advertisements. One measures 10 x 12 inches, the other 11 x 8.5 inches (Vg-Ex, with a corner chip and a few minor creases). Multi-Signed Items: 1-5) Five non-vintage 8 x 10-inch black-and-white photos of Mantle posing with various players. Each photo has been signed by Mantle and the other player(s) pictured. Three photos, two of which are identical, have been signed by Mantle and Stan Musial (all Ex-Mt). Another has been signed by Mantle and Yogi Berra (Ex-Mt). The final photo has been signed by Mantle, Musial, and Ted Williams (Vg-Ex). LOA from James Spence/JSA. Total: 14 signed items. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $3,231.25
