1961 Topps baseball card (#475) signed on the front in vintage blue ink by Mickey Mantle. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, with the signature graded NM 7. This card dates from the historic 1961 season and appears to have been signed by Mantle during that year or shortly thereafter, as the signature appears to be of that approximate vintage. Mantle waged an epic home-run battle with teammate Roger Maris in 1961. Unfortunately, a late-season injury curtailed any chance he may have had at breaking Ruth’s single-season home-run record and he finished the year with a career-high fifty-four home runs. Mantle-signed baseball cards have always been in high demand, especially those signed at the approximate time of issue. The card displays light corner wear and is in Excellent condition overall. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
