1959 Bazooka Mickey Mantle, flawlessly signed by Mantle on the front in black fine-point marker. Mantle’s signature contrasts beautifully against the white background of his uniform and grades a perfect “10.” Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, with the signature certified as “Authentic.” This is certainly one of the rarest of all Mantle signed cards, as we have never seen another example. As most collectors are aware, Mantle is the key card in the twenty-three-card set, which was printed on boxes of one-cent Bazooka bubble gum (one card per box). Like all cards from the set, the offered card was hand cut from the box; otherwise it is Ex-Mt in its overall appearance. This is one of the most attractive of all Mantle signed cards we have handled and one that would be among the highlights of any Mickey Mantle or signed baseball-card collection. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Pre certified by Steve Grad and Brian Sobrero/Beckett Authentication. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
