Mickey Mantle Signed Program to His Son and Daughter-In-Law - Signed "Mickey 'Gran-Pa' Mantle"
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $2,666
This program, from the 1988 Mickey Mantle Loma Linda Charity Golf Classic, is notable for the poignant, heartfelt inscription on the front cover from Mantle to his son, Mickey Jr., and his then-pregnant wife Cindy: "To Mickey + Cindy/Don't give up on/me I'll be allright [sic]!/Have a healthy Baby!/Mickey 'Gran-Pa' Mantle." Mantle's inscription has been flawlessly scripted in blue Sharpie and grades "10." Mantle's inscription most likely relates to his health issues at the time, and which he wrestled with on and off for many years. This is a unique Mantle signed piece and one that touches upon many aspects of Mantle's life following his baseball career (health, family life, the concern of the Mantle family for his well being, and their desire for him to be around and healthy for his family and grandchildren for many decades to come, his work with charity, etc). The thirty-page program (8.5 x 11 inches) displays minor handling wear and is in Excellent condition overall. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,666
