Official American League (Brown) ball featuring the rare full-name signature "Mickey Charles Mantle" across the sweet spot. Mantle's signature has been boldly scripted in blue ink and grades "9." Mickey Mantle full-name single-signed balls are the exception rather than the rule. They are far rarer than most collectors realize, and have always been extremely highly prized. The ball displays some light scattered age toning, as well as an area of discoloration on the south panel where there has been a removal of either a signature or written notation. In Very Good condition overall. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
