Mickey Mantle H&B commemorative signature-model bat, flawlessly inscribed, "Mickey Mantle/No. 7" in blue Sharpie (grading "10") on the barrel. Mantle signed thousands of baseballs over the years but a very modest number of bats. This is a particularly noteworthy example given that Mantle has added the highly desirable "No. 7" inscription under his signature. Further distinguishing this bat is the fact that it was signed by Mantle under the auspices of Upper Deck and is accompanied by an Upper Deck COA and corresponding hologram label, which is affixed to the knob. The bat (35 inches), which is identical to the model used by Mantle during his playing career, remains in Mint condition and bag and box as issued from Upper Deck.
COA from Upper Deck and auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+.
