a Mickey Mantle Autograph signed on an 8 x 10 Photo. This autograph was obtained in
person at a signing in the late 1980's at a baseball card
show in Brooklyn. I witnessed the signing, so if you are using it to compare to
one you are purchasing feel safe that it is authentic.
At the Show signing with Mickey was Reggie Jackson.
Jackson was getting $10. and Mickey was getting $15.
Wow! That was top $ back then.

that accompanies the signature. Rare examples of a

raise the price to the $1,000. price range. Personal
inscription like "Good luck Mike" could sell
below $400. A rarely signed full name signature
"Mickey Charles Mantle" will break the $2,000
price mark as it did in a May 5th 2007 live eBay auction
selling for $2,390.
After condition the type of authenticity that
accompanies the signature will dictate the price. Mickey
Mantle was under contract with the Upper-Deck company

deck hologram could sell in the $1,000.-$1,500. price
range. signatures that have not been authenticated could
sell at half the market value or less.
Mantle's Autograph was different at the beginning of his
