Collection of five Mickey Mantle signed baseballs, as well as a few additional unsigned items commemorating the fabled career of "The Mick."

Each of the balls is an official American League (Brown) ball and has been signed in blue ink across the sweet spot (grading "9" or "10").

Without reference to the toning, all of the balls are in Excellent to Mint condition.
