 This is 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.

A Mickey Mantle single signed baseball is worth about $500.-$800. A Mickey Mantle signed Photo is worth about $150.-$300. Larger and more desired photos could sell for more.

Price will vary based on condition, and type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Rare examples of a pristine signature or inscriptions like "The Mick" "HOF 1974" or 536 HR's" could 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 before he passed away. Baseballs that have the Upper 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.

 Mickey Mantle's Autograph was different at the beginning of his carrier than it was later in his life. Be aware of team signed baseballs from the old days, in that on occasions, Club house people would sign for a player that was not available.

TIP! Don't Forget to keep your Autographs Away from a lot of Light, especially sunlight! Even reflected sunlight will take its toll. 

 The Ideal conditions for display would be indirect lighting, at a room temperature of 65 - 70 degrees, and 50% humidity. Always check your signatures periodically for signs of fading or deterioration, and avoid excessive handling.
