Mickey Mantle Signed Doug West Original Artwork - with "No. 7" Inscription
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $840
Original gouache-on-board painting of Mickey Mantle by noted sports artist Doug West, signed by both Mantle and West. The artwork features three separate images of Mantle, in different poses, and also pays homage to Mantle's place in Yankees franchise history by including background images of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. This is an evocative work and one of the finest original Mantle artworks we have ever offered. Mantle has beautifully inscribed the piece "Mickey Mantle/No. 7" in blue Sharpie ("grading "9") atop the largest of his three images. West has signed the piece in the lower right corner. Doug West is one of the most accomplished sports artists working today. Most collectors are familiar with West's work on the "Legends of Hockey" art-card series, which is similar to baseball's Perez-Steele Hall of Fame postcards . West has also created a number of cover artworks for the National Baseball Hall of Fame's annual yearbooks and works closely with the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinees Assistance Fund in creating a series of popular lithographs for retail sale. The artwork (24 x 18 inches) is in Mint condition and has been matted and framed to total dimensions of 34 x 28 inches. LOA from James Spence/JSA. SOLD FOR $840
