Description

A high-energy treasure in its own right, this original Mickey Mantle Hartland was quantumly enhanced with the addition of Mick’s autograph. It might seem that a delight such as this would be more forthcoming in the hobby – but despite their intense popularity, first generation Hartlands are yet scarce. (The opportunity for Mantle to sign one must be regarded infrequent, at best.) The statue, as good fortune would have it, is in splendid condition. The uniform is perfectly white and the register of the painted details (logo on the hat and jersey, as well as the belt, shoes, stirrups and “7”) are faultless. The only remote departure from perfect is to be found on the forearms which, typically, bear very minor imperfections in the flesh tones. Summarily, we can’t deny this statue Near Mint, and most collectors would welcome it NM/MT. The ‘large’ bat appears to be the original. The autograph was applied with a blue fine felt tip. And though the signature is distintively Mantle, we must forgive the continuity of the penmanship – after all, the surface (above and below “7”) is characterized by shallow vertical grooves, meant to illustrate Yankee pinstripes. With that qualification, we assess this signing as about “8”, but proclaiming that we can’t imagine a stronger autograph on a Hartland statue. The accessories are included here, as well. The condition of the box is quite reduced with crushing and a detached lid (which, however, is retained). It also includes the tag which is VG due to a crease. Nonetheless, this signed Hartland is a splendid piece – one of compelling display.
