Renowned pop artist Steve Sax is not to be confused with the former second baseman (though they were born during the same year). There is no confusion, however, regarding the likeness and autograph on this original painting designed by the former. Composed by Sax in water-based paint on a 35-7/8 x 48-1/8” thick wooden slab, this animated likeness of famed switch-hitter Mickey Mantle is autographed by its fence-clearing subject in blue marker. Executed on the bat’s likeness, Mantle’s powerful scripting shows (“8-9”) strength and clarity. Interestingly, the reverse side has a colorful likeness of soccer great Pele. There is a wire hanger firmly affixed to the back to facilitate display. Full photo LOA from JSA.
