Two Artists created this extraordinary and unique tribute to Mickey Mantle, hand-signed by Mickey Mantle!
This oversized showpiece depicts The Mick in multiple portraits through a large #7 portal on a background field of Yankees pinstripe. A limited edition lithograph, created on heavy acid-free paper, it is numbered 136/250, and hand-signed and titled by sports artist Samantha Wendell.
Next, artist Bill Lopa personally hand-painted an original, finely detailed NY Yankees "triple-crown 1956" remarque on the artwork. Lopa has hand-signed the artwork, "W. Lopa", and a second edition number "P.P. 4/7" designates this rare work as only one of seven "Player's Proofs" created by Lopa, making this a double limited edition artwork.
Yankees legend Mickey Mantle has personally hand-signed the artwork, in a large, clear and bold signature in blue felt-tip. Triple crown categories are Batting Average, Home Runs and Runs Batted In. In 1956, Mickey Mantle achieved Triple Crown status with a .353 Batting Average, 52 Home Runs, and 130 Runs Batted In.
This rare artwork comes beautifully framed with an elegant double-mat in a beveled marbleized blue wood frame measuring 42" in height x 36" width, (3-1/2 ft x 3 ft) and is accompanied by 2 certifications of authenticity.
The artwork is accompanied by a Full Page Letter of Authenticity from PSA/DNA Authentication Services, who examined and authenticated Mickey Mantle's signature. Additionally, PSA/DNA has marked the artwork with a special proprietary ink that contains a patented strand of synthetic DNA which will flouresce under a calibrated laser.
The artwork also comes with a second Full Page Certificate of Authenticity verifiying the authenticity of Bill Lopa's hand-painted NY Yankees triple-crown 1956 remarque.
A rare, highly collectible artwork for any Mantle or NY Yankees fan!
