    Mickey Mantle Signed Original Gerry Dvorak Oil Painting "No. 7" Inscription! New York area artist Gerry Dvorak was a freelancer in the early 1950's, hired by both Topps and Bowman to produce sports portraits for their upcoming card sets. Little did Dvorak then realize that he was producing portraits for a number of cards that would become some of the most valuable post-war baseball cards to ever see print (and in one case, the most valuable). For Topps, Dvorak would produce the artwork for the most sought after card of the latter half of the 20th Century, the 1952 Topps Mantle rookie card. In later years, Dvorak would paint recreations of each of his most notable portraits. Mantle has signed the original painting for Dvorak, as you can see here. On this 1953 recreation painting, Dvorak has nicely reproduced the frontal graphics from the famous card. Mickey Mantle has supplied a Near Mint to Mint blue Sharpie signature including his number, "#7." An incredible opportunity to obtain an original piece of art depicting one of the greatest cards in the hobby. Some minor wear to the frame, which can be easily fixed. Full LOA from PSA/DNA
