Description

Among the most coveted prizes of the post-war era is the single-medium, twin-tower signing of Mantle and Maris. To be sure, an integral chapter of baseball lore was written in 1961 when these two sluggers amicably dueled in the race to eclipse that long-standing Ruthian home run record. And here available is the opportunity to claim one of those prizes. The medium is an OAL (MacPhail, the Rawlings variety) which has gently toned, mostly on the inert south panel (although it qualifies to a small degree on the north, Mantle, surface). Particularly unusual (and gratifying as well) is the orchestration of these two autographs. As a matter of precedent, the longer-tenured and soul of Yankeedom, Mantle, usually signed the sweet spot. But, as is demonstrated in our attending photo, the new champion of single-season home runs, Maris, penned the sweet spot – rather relegating Mickey to a side panel. (Rarely could Maris be prodded to sign the exclusive surface.) And so repose these iconic signatures. Both are blue ballpoint (possibly using the same instrument), and both are perfectly clean. The trong>Mickey Mantle autograph is just a slight measure weak in the first “M” and we estimate its strength at about “trong>8-9”. The quality of the trong>Roger Maris scribing is positively impeccable – “trong>9-10”.
