The laugh lines in his eyes and the dimples animate a lighthearted portrait of Mickey Mantle in what appears to be the twilight of his career. As written at the bottom, this was the first of 10 artist's proofs in this series by noted sports shutterbug Neil Leifer, whose signature appears with the dramatic autograph of Mantle's. Those looping M's could make the Hall of Fame on their own. The 18-by-24 Opening Day condition color stunner, which comes with certification by Upper Deck Authenticated and the hologram, can brighten any collection and the mood of anyone who views it. Mantle could ignite his charm as quickly as he could turn on a hanging curveball.
