Mickey Mantle Uniquely Signed and Inscribed Oversized Photo Paying Tribute To Gehrig and DiMaggio
Starting Bid - $200.00 , Sold For - $2,115.00
This unique Mickey Mantle signed photo pictures not Mantle, but two earlier Yankee greats: Joe DiMaggio and Lou Gehrig. In the inscription on this very unusual signed piece, Mantle pays tribute to fellow Yankee legends Lou Gehrig and Joe DiMaggio. The 16 x 20-inch black-and-white photo captures DiMaggio being greeted at the plate by Gehrig after a home run. Mantle has commented upon the scene by inscribing the photo, "Two of the greatest all-around baseball players of all time. - Mickey Mantle." Both the inscription, which is printed, and Mantle's signature have been boldly penned in black Sharpie and grade "10." Gehrig and DiMaggio have each been identified in black Sharpie upon their respective images. The photo has two very small tears in the upper left corner which have been repaired by clear tape on the reverse, as well as a few minor surface wrinkles (most are only visible when viewed at certain angles). Technically Very Good to Excellent condition but when matted and framed it will look Near Mint. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $2,115.00
