    Mickey Mantle Signed "Rawlings 1956 Player of the Year" Large Advertising Sign from the Sarabella Collection. There is no shortage of vintage advertising sign collectors who would offer their first born for this absolutely remarkable advertising sign, which made use of the Mick's country boy good looks and the mention of his "Player of the Year" status in 1956 (his Triple Crown season!) to market fielder's gloves to the youth of America. But the offered piece might make them give up their big screen televisions as well, as this outrageously tough sign bears a perfect blue sharpie signature from the MVP himself. While the autograph is flawless, the sign itself, measuring 19.5x31" on cardboard stock, does show a definite degree of wear, with scattered creases and rubbing to the surface. But as our catalog photos should illustrate, the overall visual appeal of the piece is still exceptionally strong. And for those considering holding off for the next offering to come along, we wish our most sincere luck for what figures to be a long, long wait. Matted and framed to final dimensions of 25x36". LOA from PSA/DNA.
