Circa 1952 Mickey Mantle Single-Signed Baseball

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,057.50

Vintage Mickey Mantle single-signed baseballs have always been held in high regard by sophisticated collectors. They are also quite rare. Mantle's signature, like that of most individuals, changed over time, and today an early Mantle-signed ball stands in stark contrast to one of the thousands originating from his 1980 and 1990 show signing appearances and commercial signing ventures. Offered here is an exceptional vintage Mickey Mantle single-signed ball dating from extremely early in his Major League career. According to JSA Authentication (and others), this signed ball dates from circa 1952, making it one of the earliest Mickey Mantle single-signed baseballs in existence. The "Official Park League" baseball has been inscribed in blue ink (grading "5/6") on a side panel, "Best Wishes Mickey Mantle." The ball features bold stampings and is in Excellent to Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,057.50
