Default Several Mickey Mantle Autos - These Likely Legit? Opinions Requested from Forum SMEs

I want to submit several of these for PSA/DNA quick opinions, but the pictures are likely not zoomed in enough or not focused well to generate an opinion. I am looking to obtain opinions from the net54 forum subject matter experts....are these autos likely genuine (i.e. they would likely pass PSA/DNA full authentication down the road)?

I have numbered each potential auto item. Let me know per each number if it good or bad.

Thank you in advance. I love this forum and will pay it back down the road.

1. Mantle Auto Bat:


2. Mantle Auto Ball:


3. Mantle Auto 8x10 Photo:



4. Mantle Auto Litho:

Edited to correct incorrect opinion - #3 is apparently good. I didn't like it, but have been tutored.

Hmmmm.
I still don't care for that second "M" on the ball, but if Shelly gives it the thumbs up, I wouldn't argue.

It's definitely authentic, Mark.

Look at the entire autograph. There will always be variations of "The Mick's" autograph.

Actually Lordstan, the 2nd "M" is a Perfect example, IMHO. From the ink dropped at the beginning, to the perfect flick up to the "a"....it is Text book.

I thought you might not like the "c" because it's a little straight up compared to many authentic signatures. This is the style that the Florida Forgers like to use and they just butcher it. NO ONE, But No one can get that "c" like that except the Mick. This style "c" appears in about 5-10% of all authentic Mantles.

Is it just me or are Mick's signatures on flats far easier to authenticate than Mick's signature on a ball? I couldn't give you an answer one way or another on #2, but #3 was an easy yes for me.

Yes of course any time you sign on a flat surface it is much easier to try and forge a name. It still comes down to the flow and your eye. Or you can always check the C
