How much is an autographed Mickey Mantle picture worth?

User Avatar
A Mickey Mantle signed 8 x 10 photo sells for about $150.-$300. Price will vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Photo composition, and appeal will effect the price as well. Part of the value will be determined by how well the photo displays the signature. The type of ink used, and how it stands out in contrast to the photograph will also effect the price. Sharpie would be most preferred for a photo. Larger and more desired pictures could sell for more. Mickey Mantle signed a lot of Autographs. One of the most sought after signatures, there are also a lot of fakes on the market. The numbers are alarming. This is why to get top dollar for an autograph it should be properly authenticated. Signatures that are not properly authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. For more information on Mickey Mantle signatures visit the link below.

What song is played at New York Rangers games?

They play the goal song when they score. The victory song when they win. And when they are winning at the bottom of the third they play sweet Caroline-Neil Diamond. But lately, they've been playing sweet Caroline instead of the victory song.

Which side of the plate did Mickey Mantle hit his 500th home run from?

User Avatar
Mickey Mantle hit his 500th home run at Yankee Stadium on May 14, 1967. The solo blast came in the 7th inning against relief pitcher Stu Miller of the Baltimore Orioles. Miller was right-handed so Mantle batted left-handed. This is confirmed by the photograph of the event that you can find at various places.

When did major league baseball first start using player numbers?

User Avatar
The Yankees first used numbers on their jerseys to reflect their batting order. I don't know exactly when they started, probably during the Gehrig/Ruth years. According to Baseball Almanac.com, the Indians were the first to use numbers. They were experimenting with numbers and on 16 April, 1929 played the first game with numbers added. The Yankees had added numbers permanently but had been rained out a couple of times, so the Indians beat them to the punch. The Yankees also played the same day, but I guess the Indians game was earlier. The NY Yankess put numbers on their jerseys reflectong the batting order. This put numbers in order to indentify each player so that the fans sitting far away would see the Babe. Ruth is the reason we have numbers today. Please check out Ken Burns' baseball to find out more. From the website: http://www.all-baseball.com/ref/retired.HTML Here are a few key dates in the evolution of uniform numbers: * 1907: The Reading Red Roses are the first team to experiment with uniform numbers. * 1916: The Cleveland Indians are the first major league team to experiment with uniform numbers. On June 26, they wear numbers on the left sleeve. The project lasts only a few weeks. * 1917: Indians try again, this time with the numbers on the right sleeve. Again, they abandon them after a brief trial. * 1923: The St. Louis Cardinals try numbers on the sleeves. It is short-lived. * 1929: The Yankees and Indians wear numbers on the backs of their jerseys. * 1932: NL president John Heydler issues an edict on June 22 that all NL teams should number their players "With each club to inaugurate the system as soon as possible." * 1937: The Philadelphia A's become the last team to add numbers to their home uniforms. The team, and the rest of the AL, had added numbers to their road shirts in 1931.

What does 'walk off home run' mean?

User Avatar
A walk-off home run is a home run which ends the game. This is a phrase that has only recently entered the baseball lexicon, believed to have been started by Dennis Eckersley of the Oakland Athletics after Kirk Gibson hit a home run off of him in the bottom of the ninth inning in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series to win the game. If the home team hits a home run to win the game in the 9th or an extra inning, both teams walk off the field since the game is over. A walk-off home run is a home run in the bottom of the last inning that ends the game. A walk-off home run is a home run that ends the game. It must be a home run that gives the home team the lead in the bottom of the 9th inning or the bottom of any extra inning. It is called a "walk-off" home run because the teams walk off the field immediately afterward.

How much is a Mickey Mantle K55 worth?

User Avatar
Mickey Mantle Louisville Slugger K55 Store Model Bat In general a Mickey Mantle Louisville Slugger 125 K55 full size, store model bat in unused excellent -near/mint condition is worth about $75.-$150. in used but not abused excellent condition about $50.-$100. The bulk of the value will be determined by the condition, and age. Longer, older and higher grade bats will sell for more. With Louisville slugger bats in short, if your bat has the size stamped into the knob it is a store model bat. This is placed there to help the buyer identify the size of the bat. Examples of this would be number like; 4, 04, 34, and in this case MM4. These markings will indicate a 34 inch bat. When letters proceed the number like MM4 it is indicating the player model initials followed by the size, In this case MM4 Mickey Mantle 34 inch. This number as the 125 in the center brand is not a model number. A bat closest in size, and mode to the bat a player used during his career will have a higher value. Mickey Mantle was known to use Models M110, K55, and P72. Louisville slugger began using model numbers on the knob in 1943 then moving the model number to the barrel in 1977. For example a K55 Mickey Mantle pro model would have K55 on the knob as opposed to the store model bat with K55 appearing on the barrel. The "125" refers to the grade of wood used to make the bat. "125" is the highest grade and is reserved for all pro level bats. The "125" bats are also used for the highest quality store model bats. The dating of the bat is one of the most important factors on value along with condition. Hillerich & Bradsby Co. Louisville Slugger has used different oval center brands in their history. By identifying the center label, trade marks, and patens you can narrow down the year to what era the bat was made.

Vintage Packers memorabilia is a collector favorite and value is determined by three factors: condition, condition, and condition! These two items, in strong "excellent" condition, would be worth between $150-250, and more if they are both in premium, near-mint condition.

What is the value of a Mickey Mantle autograph?

User Avatar
Signatures will vary in price based on condition, the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature, the item signed, and how well the item displays the signature. Baseballs are the most common, and preferred by collectors because of it's connection to the game, low cost, availability and it displays the signature well. The signed baseball represents the average price for a signature, and by deducting or adding from this price for the Item signed accordingly will give you a good idea on value. The lowest priced signed item would be for a "cut Signature." A cut signature is a signature on a piece of paper, or "cut" from a larger piece. Index cards are the next step up, and both sell at a fraction (about 10%-20%) the price of an autographed baseball. Autograph photos typically sell at about 40-60 percent the price of a baseball with bats, uniform Jersey's and equipment selling at a higher price due to the higher cost of the item, rarity and display. In general if an autographed baseball is worth $100. the same autograph on a 8x10 photo $50. a cut signature $20. on a bat $150. The percentage of the price could also vary based on the popularity of the player, and how sought after the signature is. A Mickey Mantle single signed baseball is worth about $400.-$600. Price will vary based on condition, and type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Rare examples of pristine signatures or inscriptions like "The Mick" "HOF 1974" or 536 HR's" could raise the price to the $1,000. price range. Personal inscription like "Good luck Mike" could sell below $400. A rarely signed full name signature "Mickey Charles Mantle" will break the $2,000 price mark as it did in a May 5th 2007 live eBay auction selling for $2,390. A signed photo sells between $150.-$300. After condition the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature will dictate the price. Mickey Mantle was under contract with the Upper-Deck company before he passed away. Baseballs that have the Upper deck hologram could sell in the $1,000.-$1,500. price range. signatures that have not been authenticated could sell at half the market value or less.
