Default Mantle Item Need Help identifying

Purchased this and not really sure what it is. Was told it was a Rawlings Glove insert but I don't really believe that, considering there is not a glove or "Rawlings" name anywhere on the photo.

Measures 5 x 7 - Back is blank. Image is Glossy

Any help identifying this piece would be greatly appreciated.

Had it at the Philly Show today - none of the dealers I spoke with had seen it before

Thanks for your help

Hello,

I discussed, and may have purchased (my checklist needs to be update), one of these from Kelly Eisenhauer, who I consider one of the experts on oddball Mantle items, a few years ago. I do not believe that it is a Rawlings premium--it is not marked like the others are--but, unfortunately, I do not know who it was released by and Kelly had it listed as an "unknown."

If you find out any additional information about it, I'd love to know though.

Chris

Like Chris, I got a copy of that photo from Kelly E. and the original source is unknown. The main reason I'm writing is because I guess I hadn't looked at the photo too close before. I hadn't noticed that the fence, "crowd," and hills in the background are painted and not part of an actual photograph.
