What do you guys think of this autograph?? The 'M' in Mantle has the uptick, but the 'n' is not my favorite. However, the 'n' does match up to many UDA that i have seen. I am on the fence and need some expert opinions. Thanks so much for the help!!

The I after M in Mickey is a bit odd, but that could just be a skip, etc. Overall, from first look, I think it's fine. Now, Richard and the gang hopefully will reply.

There is nothing wrong with that Mantle. Authentic Mantle.

Thanks so much for the feedback. Glad to know that everyone thinks it is authentic. I am still a bit shaky on deciding the authenticity of Mickey's autograph, so it is great to get a consensus opinion.

Now I just need to agree on a price....

It looks toned and it also looks like the ball has a dent on top.

if it's a Bobby Brown AL (Haiti or Costa Rica), in that shape, It should be in the range of 200-275 (No authentication works fine for this ball). Good luck.

Thanks for all the feedback. I got the ball last week, and I think it looks better in-person. I am very happy to add an authentic Mantle to my collection. I think getting the feedback from this board is much better than any COA!!


I ended up getting a Richie Ashburn with HOF, Larry Doby with HOF, Sparky Anderson with HOF, and the Mantle for a great price from a collector who is getting rid of his stuff, as he hasn't collected in a number of years.

Good stuff! BTW, Vinny / T&A sports is 100% legit. Good dealer.
