Default Any Mantle Auto Experts in the house?

I bought a huge collection of cards over the weekend. The seller wasn't a collector, but his father and brother were (they have been dead for 20+) years. There were quite a few autographed items and the seller told me that they would go to events and have things signed when he was a kid.

So, I found this in one of the folders. Obviously, quite a find if it's legit. Anyone? Just to be clear: "send it in for review" is really not an original idea or helpful. Thanks.

There are a ton on the Autograph forum here. The mods will probably move your post there.

Default Mantle’s Ms

I am definitely not an expert but based on comparing your example with several MM in-person autographed items in my collection, yours looks genuine. The double-backing on the bottom of the Ms is a distinct feature of Mantle’s authentic signature. Check out this article on forgeries for comparison...

It's fine to repost this in the autograph forum. You will get expert opinions over there.

Not sure why the board code changed when moved, but here's an image of the auto in question.


There is a guy on the board who is trying to collect the 1964 Topps Giants cards all signed.
