Description

    1951 Mickey Mantle Signed Government Postcard, PSA/DNA NM-MT 8.

    Just a month after his first Big League game, and the kid already had a fan club! Almost as intriguing as the early format signature that survives in 10/10 boldness on the front of this postcard is the stamping on the back, which notes "Mickey Mantle Fan Club" as the return address. The "May 18, 1951" on the New York City postmark and "Grand Central Station" indication appear on the front, with the former gracefully intersecting with the tip of Mickey's "k," undoubtedly the result of an exuberant postal clerk's desire to be close to greatness. One of the earliest Yankee autographs we've encountered from this iconic slugger. Tape stain at bottom of postcard causes no concern. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, NM-MT 8.
