Circa 1990 Mickey Mantle Signed "Fantasy Camp" Bat
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $1,175.00
In the world of Mantle bats, a Mickey Mantle/Whitey Ford Fantasy Baseball Camp bat is certainly one of the less commonly seen styles. These bats were specially produced for the fantasy camp and were only issued to those who attended. Offered here is one such rarity that has been flawlessly signed by Mantle in black Sharpie (“10”) directly below the barrel stamping. The bat, a thirty-four inch Louisville Slugger 125 model, bears the special camp logo of “The Mickey Mantle Whitey Ford Fantasy Baseball Camp” stamped just to the right of the center brand. The name of the former camp member, “Al Abrams,” is stamped on the barrel. The Mantle/Ford Fantasy Camp began operations in the 1980s and continued into the early 1990s. Mantle passed away in 1995. The bat displays no use and aside from a few light surface marks is in Near Mint condition. From the Barry Halper Collection. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,175.00
