Lot Number: 2

Description: Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris autographed baseball from the personal collection of Barry Halper. MacPhail AL ball signed by Mantle across the sweet spot and Maris on an adjacent side panel in blue ink. Signatures remain very strong rating 9/10 out of 10 each. The ball itself exhibits only some very minor age toning with bold manufacturer's stampings. This particular example of the famed Yankees duo originated from the personal collection of Barry Halper. As recounted by Halper in the included letter of provenance, he had asked Maris to sign the ball first to which Roger replied that he would only sign the side panel leaving the sweet spot for Mickey. Halper later had Mantle sign the ball and fondly recalled this story years later. Very strong exemplar with desirable Halper Collection provenance. Includes LOA from JSA and letter of provenance on Yankees/Halper stationary signed by Halper: Ball: EX/MT-NM, Signatures: NM-MT

Estimated Price Range: ($7,500-$10,000)
