    1953 Mickey Mantle Signed Book. The legend of the Mick was only just beginning in 1953, but that didn't stop the brash young superstar from publishing The Mickey Mantle Story that year. Here we present a first edition of the hardcover book, inscribed on the opening page "Best Wishes, Mickey Mantle" in the superstar slugger's highly desirable rookie-era format. The inscription rates a perfect 10/10. It appears that the inscription was originally personalized "To George," but a secondary owner chose to obscure that inscription, and cover it, and most of the rest of the page, with brown pencil. This does not affect the rest of the inscription in any way. The book is missing its dustjacket and shows typical edge and corner wear, but remains solid, complete and tightly bound. A wonderful example of this scarce early Mantle signature. LOA from PSA/DNA.
