Yes I agree that the Mantle is authentic. He cared when he signed and his placement was always right on. It's a card so it's not like he's got unlimited space to sign. Very nice example

I got a real one if you want to use it as an exemplar. I met him when I was 15.

I'll weigh in. I think it's authentic. But, it's not typical for the most common type and could definitely throw folks off who might not study his signature quite in depth. From the ones I have owned, I am going to assume this one is late 1970's to maybe early 1980's? There was a period of time that the Mick signed with a really really small "y' in his first name and this is near that time. I personally would not have any issues buying or selling this example. No slight intended to anyone who has posted their opinion, but I have gotten railed on this before. People who don't really know autographs as their main area of expertise can post on forums and really affect both buyers and sellers. Just like the BST section on Net54, the autograph section is starting to become caveat emptor unless you know which are less empty than others.

I repeat...I met him when I was 15, so I can show what a real signature looks like. Chad Durbin you can kiss my ass!!!! My apologies that the M in Mickey look off!!! I didn't sign it! That alone gives me cause for concern. But if JSA said it was good, it MUST be, eh?

I know very little about autographs so please explain to me how meeting him at 15 makes any difference. Was it a 1 time meeting or did you become personal friends and hang out all the time discussing how his autograph changed over time?

Please show your real autograph.

I got his auotgraph, obtained in person, and signed to me. Not some random signature on the internet that someone never saw signed.....I dont like the insinuations, or the way this thread is going. The autograph is good. JSA always gets it right. Case closed.

You know Bobby, you are allowed your opinion, but if you weren't so snotty and insulting to others who happen to have a different one, you would not have gotten the insinuations. You got back exactly what you gave.
As far as you getting his signature when you were 15 that does not make you an expert on his signature. As i said before, i own over 100 Mantle signatures. Every single one of those was gotten in person at shows in the 1980's. I saw and met him probably 40-50 times during the decade. Does that make me an expert? No it doesn't, but having studied how his autograph has changed over time is the thing that makes all of us say that it is good.
So, it's pretty much you and one other person who think its bad vs everyone else here plus one of the major authentication companies that all think its good. Again, you are allowed your opinion, but belittling everyone else's opinion is not needed.
