Mickey Mantle Original Collage Artwork Comprised of 1,292 Topps Micro Baseball Cards
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $1,175.00
Presented here is one of the most interesting and novel Mickey Mantle artworks we have ever seen. Comprised of over 1,000 Topps Micro Baseball cards, the unique style of this collage makes this an unusually interactive and memorable display piece. When viewing this artwork up close it appears to simply be a collection of 1,292 assorted Topps Micro cards (1991 through 1993) affixed upon a large 37.5 x 47-inch cardboard mount. As one slowly retreats from the piece, however, the collection of cards takes on an entirely different appearance. Utilizing the varying shades and colors of each card, the artist has transformed what seemed to be a random assemblage of cards into a phenomenal and unmistakable image of Mickey Mantle, in uniform, as seen from behind. The familiar image captures "The Mick" standing, with his head half turned, and his famous number "7" prominently visible on his jersey. This piece appears to be one of a limited number of seven such pieces produced by the artist, as it is signed ("Jamm") and numbered ("1/7") in silver paint pen in the lower right corner. This is a modern classic, a phenomenal conversation piece, and one that would be perfect for display in an office or lobby setting. Please Note: Due to the size and/or weight of this lot, shipping costs (depending on where it is sent and its method of shipping) may be substantial. Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,175.00
