    Description

    1958 Mission Orange Soda Mickey Mantle PSA NM-MT 8 - Pop One, None Higher! With fame and popularity come product endorsements. If it was the late-1950's there were few people on earth that you wanted to see using or promoting your product than New York Yankees outfielder - Mickey Mantle. For advertisers, that Oklahoma-based, All-American smile was marketing gold. Although based 3,000 miles away, "Mission of California" used Mantle to promote their Orange Soda in 1957 and 1958 via newspaper ads and a comic book offer.

    There are two major collectibles that enticed kids to drink Mission Orange Soda. One was a 16-page comic book featuring stories of Mantle's early days as a Bronx Bomber called "My Greatest Thrills In Baseball" which was inserted into six-packs of Mission Soda and this rare, painfully thin, 5" x 7-7/8" B&W premium photo featuring a close-up portrait of a smiling Mantle along with "Best Wishes" and a facsimile signature. Fans of Dan Dee Potato chips will certainly recognize this classic portrait. This is a rarity that appears to have been offered at auction just one other time that we have been able to confirm. Graded PSA NM-MT 8. One of only nine total graded by PSA. It is the finest of that minuscule population.
