Thanks for the input so far.... looks like currently its a 50/50 split on who thinks its good vs fake. I thought it looked good compared to google images as well.

Much better than 50/50. Very reputable people saying it's good.

I would go with Chuck's opinion. He is very knowledgeable on Mantle, as are Chris, Shelley and Steve Z.

While the scan is too low-res to be 100% definitive, this appears to be a facsimile of an authentic example. Also indicative of this is the "Best Wishes" without personalization, commonly found on promotional items. It was exceedingly rare for MM to sign a photo in this manner. You'll encounter the odd side-paneled ball, but photos from this era of signature style are practically nonexistent.

Thanks all for the knowledgeable input and opinions. I appreciate it and will post more pictures if I can come to a deal with the seller.

Agree. Authentic, but it may be a preprint.
