Original acrylic on canvas painting of Mickey Mantle by noted sports artist Robert Stephen Simon, signed by both Mantle and Simon. Mantle's blue Sharpie signature, which measures 7.5 inches in length, appears atop his image and grades "10." Ideally, Mantle has also added the notation, "No. 7," directly below his name. Signed by the artist in the lower right corner. In 1988, Robert Simon was commissioned by Mickey Mantle to execute six different paintings of Mantle, one of which would ultimately be chosen to hang in the newly opened Mickey Mantle's Restaurant in New York City. The offered painting was one of those six, but not the ultimate selection for the restaurant. The painting (24 x 30 inches) displays some light crazing throughout and is otherwise in Near Mint condition. Framed to total dimensions of 27 x 33 inches. Full LOA from PSA/DNA and auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
