What is the value of an original menu from Mickey Mantle's restaurant located in a Holiday Inn in Joplin Missouri with his autograph dated 1962?

Genuine signed examples of this neat menu from Mickey's Joplin enterprise typically sell for $150-200, depending on condition and clarity & placement of Mantle's autograph. These Holiday Inn items were much scarcer prior to the advent of the internet. Prices reflect this exposure.
Price will vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Signatures that are not authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. In this case if the signature is not properly authenticated it could sell between $75.-$150. or less which is below the price of an unsigned menu.
Mickey Mantle's Holiday Inn was opened in Joplin, Missouri with business partner Harold Youngman in 1957. Items from Mickey Mantle's Holiday Inn Include ashtrays, soap, matchbooks, photo postcards, napkins, the rare "Our Trip" note / photo album, and a menu for the Second Annual Ballplayers' Party Given by Mickey Mantle on February 2, 1962. Below I will leave a link to a list of Holiday Inn items, and a Price guide based on recently closed auctions.
