    Description

    1980's Mickey Mantle Signed Vintage Retail Model Bat. The Mick is known to have had a strong aversion to signing bats, resulting in a genuine shortage that finds collectors jostling for the thin supply. This one should really get the battle raging however, as Mantle's 9+/10 blue sharpie signature finds itself on the barrel of a vintage store model bat rather than the typical modern replica model usually seen in the hobby. Also unusual (and desirable) is the "Best Wishes" notation that precedes his flawless autograph. The bat itself remains in likewise fine condition, with only the slightest wear to bear witness to decades of life. Length is 34.5". Certainly one of the best in breed. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
