Original painting on board, signed by Hall of Fame outfielder Mickey Mantle. The artwork, which exactingly mirrors Mantle's 1968 Topps baseball card #280, has been signed by Mantle in black Sharpie (grading "9") in the upper left corner. The artist is unknown to us, but it is signed "CCC III" in the lower right. According to our consignor, this piece was once on display at Mickey Mantle's restaurant in New York City; however, we have been unable to confirm or deny that attribution. Regardless of its history, it remains an especially attractive Mantle artwork, and one that should appeal equally to both card and autograph collectors. The mixed-media artwork (11 x 14 inches) remains in Near Mint condition. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Pre certified by Steve Grad and Brian Sobrero/Beckett Authentication. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
