    1989 Mickey Mantle Original Perez-Steele Celebration Artwork by Dick Perez. It's one of the most recognizable Mantle portraits ever executed, created for inclusion in the immensely popular "Perez-Steele Celebration" postcard set, a favorite among collectors of Hall of Fame autographs. While you commonly see this image adorned with the Mick's distinctive blue sharpie script, there is only a single original work, and this is it. Artist Dick Perez showcases his mastery of the unforgiving medium of watercolor, combining a masterful large portrait of the legendary slugger with an action shot of Mantle facing off against Cleveland Indians pitching at Yankee Stadium. The work stands eighteen inches tall and measures eleven inches in width, and presents without a single flaw of note. Double matted to 18x25" for easy framing.
