Mickey Mantle Cut Mounting Question
Hi: I have a question that maybe some of you guys can answer. I have a couple of Mickey Mantle cuts from the 1950's that I want to get slabbed. I know they're authentic but want to be able to display them. The problem is they are pretty what I was thinking of doing was to mount the autograph cut to a larger piece of paper or cardboard; and then have PSA slab it in say a 5x7 slab. I don't want to ruin the autograph cut so how would I mount the cut to another piece of paper or cardboard? I was thinking a couple of drops of glue but would that wreck the original cut value?
Thanks for any input.
Hope I made

I have done this numerous times with cuts to 3x5 cards to have them display better prior to selling them. I rarely get anything slabbed, but I agree that it looks much better with the extra background on it. I generally just use a decent 3x5. I would recommend using something non permanent and acid free so it doesn't hurt the original piece or signature. By using just some glue you run the risk of have a stain or discoloration come through you original paper with signature.

Hi Jason: How did you get the cut from slipping on the mount? Is the piece inside of a 3x5 screw down holder so the case itself holds the piece in place?

If you use photo corners you won't damage the cut.

Photo corners would be least restrictive, but I assume you want to have nothing detracting from it visually. I generally use something that has light sticking properties. I have used an acid free glue stick. Anything that could be easily released if someone chose to want to remove it, it would be easy to do. The glue stick might be a good option for you, you really don't need much at all.

Thanks Jason and Richard. Great info...

If you put it in a 3x5 mylar sleeve, would they encase it inside the sleeve? It may move around slightly, but the safest from an archival perspective.

Steve: That's good to know as well. I'll ask them if I decide to get the sigs slabbed.

I would send them to the Jose Canseco mustache guy and have a custom mount made for them. He does great work, and you could probably get it slabbed in his piece. If I had important cuts that's where I'd go.

Haha...How's the Jose Canseco mustache guy?
