    1947 Commerce (OK) High School Yearbook Signed by Mickey Mantle. The future Yankees legend was just a fifteen-year old sophomore at a small Oklahoma high school when he applied his 10/10 pencil signature to the back page of this "Bengal Tales" softcover yearbook. While Mantle autographs are quite readily available, those dating prior to his Major League ascension are extraordinarily rare, making this one of the most desirable Mantle signatures in the hobby. Mantle's youthful photo appears twice within--his solo student shot, and as a member of the basketball team. There is no mention of a baseball team at Commerce High. Yearbook exhibits an expected degree of handling and storage wear but remains solid and complete with no condition issues of any genuine concern. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
