This Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio autographed collection is comprised of various items, including photos, hats, balls, and figurines, each individually signed by Mantle or DiMaggio (there are no dual-signed pieces in the collection). Our listing is broken down by player: Mickey Mantle (6): 1-2) Two identical 16 x 20-inch color photos of Mantle in uniform holding a bat, each boldly signed in blue Sharpie (grading "10").
