Mickey Mantle's Signed American Express and Admirals Club Cards (2)
Starting Bid - $1,000.00 , Sold For - $8,225.00
Celebrity credit cards, like celebrity high school yearbooks, have become a popular field of collecting in recent years. Offered here is perhaps the most desirable example from the world of sports: Mickey Mantle’s personal American Express Platinum card. Mantle used this particular card, which features his name printed on the front, from “09/85” through “11/87.” Also noted on the card is the fact that “The Mick” has been an American Express Card member since 1969. Mantle has signed the card in blue ink (grading “8”) along the appropriate strip on the reverse. Included with the American Express card is Mantle’s American Airlines Admirals Club card. The card bears the expiration date “06 88” on the front and makes note that Mantle has been a member since “59.” The signature strip on the reverse has not been signed, but Mantle has signed the front of the card in blue Sharpie (“10”). Both of these cards (each measuring approximately 3.25 x 2.25 inches) originate directly from the Mantle family. They were purchased together at the historic 2003 Mickey Mantle Estate sale held at Madison Square Garden and are accompanied by a single COA signed by Mantle’s widow and his two sons. Each card is in Excellent condition overall. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Total: 2 items. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $8,225.00
