Remarkable ultra high-grade Mickey Mantle Hartland statue, complete with its original bat, tag, brochure, and box. This is the finest Mantle Hartland statue in its original box we have ever offered, appearing exactly as it did when it sat on the store shelf fifty-four years ago! The statue itself is snow white and essentially in Mint condition, displaying only a few extremely minor surface blemishes that are production related. To our eye, this piece has never left its original box and is even still wrapped in its original tissue paper, as issued. The accompanying bat, tag, and brochure are also in Mint condition. Its extraordinary condition notwithstanding, what truly sets this example apart from all others is the box. Aside from few small creases that seem inevitable given even limited handling, the box is in remarkable Near Mint to Mint condition and may represent one of, if not the, finest, original Hartland box (for any figure) extant. Phenomenal in all respects. You'd need a time machine to go back to 1958 to find a similar example, and this one still might be better! Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,422
