Description

    1959 Mickey Mantle "Autographed Pencil Set" Display with Nine Packets Included. Almost certainly the most well-preserved example of this rare Mantle artifact in the hobby, the presented counter display dates to the late 1950's when the Mick was at the height of his playing and marketing powers. While the packages of pencils occasionally arise (and there are nine unopened packs here!), almost never is the sixteen inch tall display which serves as their home. This is no surprise, as the rather flimsy cardboard construction and die cut upper portion were not conducive to longevity. But a fold line to the bat design at top center and minor age spotting are the only flaws to note here, leaving the condition only minimally changed from its days in an Eisenhower-era general store. It's a piece that should start a bidding war between collectors of advertising ephemera and Mantle material, so may the most devoted bidder win. Please note that these piece bear facsimile signatures from Mantle and are not hand signed as the title of the product might suggest.
