THAT TOUCH OF MINK, 1962
AUTOGRAPHED Original Vintage Lobby Card (11x14")
Starring Cary Grant & DorisDay, Mickey 
Mantle Roger Maris, Yogi Berra
Autographed by Mickey Mantle

PSA Certified

 

Here is one of the most desirable and rare Authentic Signed pieces of Sports/Movie history.    First, this rare lobby card from the 1962 Baseball movie classic “A Touch of Mink” is particularly desirable for obvious reasons.  Two of the biggest Movie Stars of 1962 and the two most famous baseball players together in one extraordinary scene.     I personally have collected this lobby card for the past 35 years, and have only seen it appear on the market 3 or 4 times in that period   This choice Original 1962 lobby card alone has sold for $1000.   But, to have it authentically autographed by Mickey Mantle (in the perfect location) is unheard of and a once in a lifetime opportunity. I have never seen one until now and I would be very surprised if another known Authentic example existed.  Certified Authentic by the leading autograph authentication service PSA and comes with PSA full letter of authenticity ...   * See enlargeable images above and below

Excellent condition with minor border wear and a faint gray streak on left hand border (most likely a printing defect on all these lobby cards).  Colors and image are spectacular!

Also, to make this piece even more exciting.  The original recipient attended a baseball collectibles show in Niagara Falls, New York, on June 18 and 19, 1988, and he obtained this autograph from Mr. Mantle at that show. Interestingly, Mr. Mantle looked at the card and told the original owner that the man at the left end of the image in the Yankees uniform was NOT a baseball player, but an "extra" that was put there so that the bench would seem filled for this scene!   

Here is the original recipient's detailed provenance of meeting Mickey Mantle:
"This lobby card was autographed in person by Mickey Mantle at the North American Sports Collectors Convention held at the Niagara Falls, NY Convention Center on June 18th and 19th, 1988.  The promoter was Ted Haines owner of Magnum Shows. Other guest signers were Hank Aaron, Bob Feller, George “Shotgun” Shuba and Sibby Sisti.

When I present the card to Mantle for an autograph, I inquired about who the other ball player was since I recognized Yogi and Maris but not the other man.  Mickey said it was not a ball player but a movie extra actor."


If you are a collector or fan of vintage movies, sports or both, this is a gem you do not want to pass up!

That Touch of Mink, the 1962 Delbert Mann romantic comedy ("Adult sophisticated comedy!"; "The years most uproarious romantic free-for-all!"; "INSISTENCE! RESISTANCE! PERSISTENCE! CO-EXISTENCE!") starring Cary Grant, Doris Day, Gig Young, Audrey Meadows, Dick Sargent, and with special guest appearances by the New York Yankees' baseball sports players Roger Maris, Mickey Mantle, and Yogi Berra!
