Mickey Mantle & Roger Maris Multi-Signed Photograph (PSA)
Probably taken prior to one of the games of the 1962 World Series, this 8x10" image screams power as three of the baseball's premier sluggers pose for the paparazzi with their prodigious lumber at The House That Ruth Built. Each signed in bold Sharpie. The image and autographs are NRMT. The Mays signature is secretarial. Comes with PSA LOA.My father Ed Kubina began going to card shows for autographs in the mid- to late 1970s. The first one I remember was at Hofstra University in Long Island, NY, where Mickey Mantle was signing. My father brought my entire Girl Scout troop, paying their way, and gave them pictures for Mickey Mantle to sign. He told them if Mr. Mantle asked them who to personalize it to, tell him to sign "To Ed." After eighteen Girl Scouts and I went through the line, Mickey looked up at my Dad when he finally made it through and said, "Hi Ed." Over the years we went to every card show Mickey signed at in the Northeast. These were our family vacations. My dad went to well over 100 shows through the years in his quest for the signatures of players like Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio, Billy Martin, and Whitey Ford. We also went to Induction Weekend at Cooperstown every year beginning in the 1980s. This is where we met and got autographs from Roger Maris along with dozens of other retired players. After Mickey Mantle's death, my dad took a trip with my brother to Commerce, Oklahoma, where Mickey Mantle was born, and took pictures. He even took a small piece off the side of the barn wall that Mantle used to practice hitting balls against when growing up. That was obsessive. - Deirdre Leary, November 2018
