Early 1960s Mickey Mantle Rawlings Advertising Display
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,528
Large retail advertising poster, measuring 20.5 x 28 inches, featuring Mickey Mantle in promotion of Rawlings baseball gloves. This is an extremely impressive and classic vintage Mantle advertising piece that is ideal for display. Mantle's facsimile signature appears in the upper left corner while the large colorful Rawlings trademark logo is pictured in the lower right. Given Mantle's star status at the time, this was probably a powerful promotional piece for Rawlings and no doubt helped sway the minds of more than a few indecisive Little Leaguers as they shopped for a new glove. Its visual appeal is no less impressive today and it remains one of the most desirable of all Mantle photographic advertising displays. The poster, which is printed on thin paper stock, displays a few light creases (primarily along the top) which are mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy and do not in the least detract from its overall strong Excellent to Mint appearance. Because of its fragile nature, few of these posters have survived. An outstanding example of this majestic Mantle advertising piece and one that would be perfect for display in either home or office. Beautifully mounted and framed to total dimensions of 29.5 x 37 inches. Please Note: Due to the size and/or weight of this lot, shipping costs (depending on where it is sent and its method of shipping) may be substantial. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,528
