    Description

    1974 Folk Art Multi-Signed Baseball by George Sosnak Honoring Mantle's Induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame. George Sosnak, an umpire of the highest order, was also quite the impressionist. The arbiter turned folk artist created a masterpiece when he took this baseball in his capable hands and painted the story of Mickey Mantle's Cooperstown induction. Two panels are completely covered with artwork and Mickey's career accomplishments. The remaining two panels of this "Special League" baseball are graced with the ink autographs of seven Hall of Famers, including Mantle, Ford, Slaughter, Hubbell, Bell, Feller, and Berra (the last four of which have been traced over by the artist for greater clarity). Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
