    Enormous Mickey Mantle Rookie Photograph from the Sarabella Collection. Don't assume that the magnitude of this black and white image of a twenty-year old superstar in the making means a sacrifice in image quality, as the contrast and detail is so sharp that one could count the freckles on Mickey's nose. While we are most accustomed to seeing such a tremendous (and expensive) photograph on a Cooperstown museum wall, we welcome this chance to offer such a unique piece to our bidding clientele. While we can offer no proof, our natural assumption is that this piece hung at one time at Yankee Stadium, as it was clearly intended for some sort of public display. Not including the simple yet elegant black frame that holds it, the photo measures 29x40" in size, and ranks at the top of the most appealing Mantle photographs we've ever encountered. Barely visible tack holes at the corners, otherwise flawless condition.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
