    Description

    1951 Mickey Mantle Signed Contract for Stamped Baseballs. Just six days after the Mick made his historic pinstriped debut, he signified his consent that his signature be stamped upon facsimile team signed baseballs sold at ballpark souvenir stands throughout the Big Leagues. The single page document is dated "this 23 day of April 1951" and stipulates that "The Autographed Ball Corporation" pay Mantle a penny for each ball sold with his stamp. The contract is signed at the close by a representative of the company and by Mickey himself in his most collectible rookie format, rating 9+/10. An example of the stamp that appeared on thousands of these Yankee balls appears on the laminated page, which bears original mailing or storage fold lines. The 8.5x11" page is professionally matted and framed with a great oversized rookie shot of Mantle to final dimensions of 21x29". Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
