Wow...great pickup Mike! Would love to see a pic with that guy up on your wall with the other spectacular framed pieces! I would almost be too scared to hang it thinking it might fall

Gonna be a bummer for your cleaning lady, though, as she'll be tasked with flipping that display over on your wall each week to change the orientation from Mantle being right side up to Maris being right side up and back again.

I would too. Unfortunately, I'm out of wall space for it. I'm not sure where it's going to go.

A couple of new additions to the family.

A 1953 New York Yankee tri-fold mailer featuring Mantle's 565 ft. homerun on the front. I had not seen one of these before.

Default Mantle rare magnet base Hartland Statue

I am an advanced Hartland statues collector. Not many people know that early in the production of the statues there was a very rare subset of magnetic statues issued. Only 11 of 18 were issued with magnets attached to the bottom of the players feet.

Of course Mickey was one. I just picked up a duplicate which is only the fourth one I have ever seen in all my 60 years of collecting Hartland's. In the late 50's when these first came out car dashboards were metal. Hartland issued these to be used that way. But in case you didn't want them on your dashboard they also included a metal base with a hole drilled in it so you could mount the base with a screw to other surfaces.

From time to time you may find statues with magnets on the bottom but without the base. The bases are actually rarer than the statues. Much like the Berra Hartland, you will see tons of them but seldom does it still have the original mask that was issued with Yogi. Too easy to lose over the years.

The same with the magnet base. Hartland also issued a smaller statue known as the Minor Leaguer on a card. See attached where you can see the mention of mounting them on the dashboard of your car. Thought you all would enjoy seeing and knowing about this rare Mantle piece.

I also picked up a Musial and Ruth with magnets and bases and a Fox without the base.

Sorry photos are so large and turned sideways. Hopefully someone can fix it for this old man who is not computer literate!

Default Magnetic base for Hartland

I had heard of these, but had never seen one. Thanks for posting. I have been fascinated with the Hartland issues ever since my parents purchased my first Hartland (Stan Musial) for me in the early '60's.

Nellie Fox was my first one. My parents went to Atlantic City for the weekend. Left me at my grandparents house. Fox was the gift they brought back to this nine year old. Been collecting them and all things Hartland's, like contracts, ads, molds, variations, prototypes, etc. ever since

Picked up a Mexican comic about Mick. This is the cover and the inside of the cover. It was printed in Feb. 1968.

I also picked up something I swore I would never get - the Bancroft Tiddlers. This is the complete booklet with Clay, etc.

I know someone who had a 9K Max bid. So your guy topped it and the bid automatically went to 10K

That's a fantastic item! Too bad it was in an auction I hadn't heard about. Or, maybe it's a good thing I didn't know about it.

Same here. Didn't know it was there. I wonder if REA or Heritage auctioning it would have upped the final number.
