Presented is a 1980's Mickey Mantle "Oklahoma Kid" Single Signed Official American League, Bobby Brown Commissioner, baseball. It's perhaps the rarest of Mantle autograph variants. Fans of the Mick will want to bid aggressively, as this is the first appearance of the ball in our auction… and waiting for the next opportunity may be a futile task. Mantle's blue ballpoint autograph on the sweet spot is blessed by his “Oklahoma Kid” inscription above his name. It should be noted that is the only example known to have the inscription above his name, and that Mantle used two different pens for the inscription per the JSA LOA.

These baseballs are so rare that in 2011 Jimmy Spence, of James Spence Authentication (JSA), had never seen a Mantle single-signed baseball inscribed “Oklahoma Kid” nor did he have any examples in his thousand plus Mantle signatures on file! We are told by those who knew Mickey well that he did not like to sign such an inscription. Needless to say, this baseball is extremely rare and quite possibly one of a kind. Authentication by James Spence Authentication (JSA)
