    Early 1980's Mickey Mantle Handwritten & Signed Joke. Actually, we can't really decide if it's a joke or an I.Q. test, but if you feel like teasing your brain then pause here for a second and try to figure it out on your own, as we'll ruin the riddle in a second. The absolutely unique piece from the mind and perfect black ink of the Mick was penned on a paper napkin for a friend and features a cartoonish drawing, some cryptic text, and a closing, classic signature. Ready for the solution? Here it is (affecting a redneck drawl): "Them are pigs! Them are not pigs! Oh yes they are! Well I'll be! Them are pigs!" Those Mantle collectors searching for something out of the ordinary have clearly found it here, and the treasured keepsake of a bar room meeting with a legend remains in identical condition to the day of its creation. Measures 4x7.5". LOA from PSA/DNA.
