I don't like it. There seems to be a lot of hesitation and formation issues.

First thing I'd do is ensure that type/brand of mitt was available when Mantle was alive. If it was, it doesn't help move anything forward, but if it wasn't, then that's the end of the story.

No opinion on the signature, but a beautiful old glove and, I assume, original box. Nice. Show more of them please.

Maybe because he's signing the finger of a baseball glove.

I see the hesitation but still think it's good.

Agree that the medium is unusual and more challenging to sign than a ball or flat. The glove is authentic and of the era, and is so incredibly nice that I believe Mantle simply took great care in signing this piece.

Furthermore....

That Mantle Glove (Mint in Box) is worth a lot of money without the sig. I really doubt that someone would deface a Mint Glove in Box with a fake autograph. It's too risky, and much too desirable an item to mess with... especially since the Mantle auto doesn't even increase its total value all that much.

I think the signature is good as well. I agree with Mark on the value of he item and unlikelihood of someone attempting a fake auto. The auto looks good with some slight deviations which would be expected from someone trying to sign a leather glove.
