    Description

    Mickey Mantle & Roger Maris Signed 1962 "Safe at Home" Large Movie Poster from the Sarabella Collection. As scarce as is the dual-signed one-sheet movie poster offered in this auction, the 40x60" monster that we present here ventures even further into the realm of disbelief. Certainly the only specimen of its kind, this poster leaves us with nothing to do but applaud the incredible foresight of Barry Halper, who corralled both of the film's superstars to sign in perfect blue sharpie, with Mick and Roger adding the sentiments of "Best Wishes" and "Best Always" respectively. The result is one of the most visually impressive autographed pieces imaginable by this magical duo of 1961, guaranteed to draw the lion's share of attention from visitors to even the finest sports memorabilia collections. For years, this poster was displayed at Mickey Mantle's Restaurant in New York City, only returning to Halper's personal collection following Mantle's death. The poster is dry-mounted for protection and exhibits natural fold lines and some patches of light staining, but still displays magnificently, with no defects that attract from visual appeal in any significant way. An elegant wooden frame carries the final dimensions to 43x63". LOA from PSA/DNA.

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