    Description

    Original Artwork Used for Mickey Mantle's Restaurant Menu with Signed Grand Opening Invitation from the Sarabella Collection. One of the finest portraits we've ever seen of this greatest of post-war baseball heroes. The stunning acrylic on board comes from the hand of noted artist Andy Jurinko, whose work has been featured in Sports Illustrated, New York Magazine, Barron's and The New York Times, and is featured in the permanent collection of the Baseball Hall of Fame. This painting was commissioned for the menu used at the opening of Mickey's popular Manhattan restaurant, as is evidenced by the copy of the menu matted to the left of the painting. If the menu looks tiny, it isn't--the painting is just tremendous, measuring a full 28x35" in size. Matted and framed along with these pieces are a pair of autographed keepsakes from the man himself, notably a postcard featuring another Jurinko portrait that would later be used as menu cover art at the restaurant, and an invitation to the Grand Opening of the eatery in 1988. Signed in blue sharpie and black ink respectively, each rates a perfect 10/10. This entire, absolutely breathtaking display measures an incredible 43x46". LOA from PSA/DNA.
