    Circa 1990 Mickey Mantle Signed "HOF '74" & Painted Baseballs Lot of 2. Sometimes, painted baseballs are just a bad idea. Leather is a difficult medium to work with for painting, and a small sphere is about the hardest shape to use. The results are often skewed, but this lot includes a painted baseball that will blow you away. Signed simply as "Jessie 00," the side panel portrait of Mantle offers a remarkable likeness in full color. It will be hard to decide whether to display the painting or the 9/10 signature on the sweet spot of this OAL (Brown) orb. A serial number "4/10" has also been added to the baseball.

    The second ball in the lot is a standard OAL (Brown) baseball with a Mantle sweet spot signature in 8/10 ballpoint pen. He has added the inscription, "HOF '74" underneath, giving it a leg up on a standard signed ball. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
