Default Mantle Authentication Help, Please

I recently purchased the following Mantle autograph, with a no questions asked return policy. Before purchasing, I compared the autograph to over a dozen Mantles that I have, where I saw Mantle sign them (signed in the mid 1960s-mid-1970s). It looks good to me, but I'm not an expert by any means. I am hoping to get your expert opinions, please.

Thanks, as always!

Thank you for your quick review and assessment. I am much more comfortable now after getting your feedback.

I have another question. What value range would you place this?

Many thanks again!!!

Personalized autographs are not so cut and dry when it comes to value.

Much easier to sell an authentic Mantle without any personal inscriptions.

I agree that it does get a bit tricky as it limits the demand. Given that it is personalized, what would you expect the range of value to be?

Any feedback is appreciated.

Thanks again.

I've seen some nice ones of that card go for in the 500-600 plus range, so with it personalized (and that name is not going to be common for a collector I think) I would guess 300-400). But that's just a guess. Maybe start at 250 and go from there?
