Description

As a means to raise money for the Baseball Alumni Team (BAT), an organization formed to help former ballplayers, Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays with the aid of Marriott Hotels and Resorts traveled to nine major cities in the United States holding autograph sessions. Offered is a pair of beautiful Marriott lithographs from this legendary 1989 tour. Displaying the artwork from the 1953 Topps sets, these 11x14 Marriott lithographs present incredibly well and have each been penned in blue sharpie by the respective legend depicted, Mantle (d.1995, "10") and Mays ("10"). Both of the lithographs are in upper grade condition and are limited edition; both are numbered (600/2000). Accompanying these beautifully signed displays is the original Marriott Mantle/Mays Tour 1st Day of Issue official packet, consisting of a folder, photo, flyer and a series of informative newsletters regarding the various events. With the classic artwork of the 1953 set and signatures from two of the greatest to lace 'em up, this lot packs more than homerun power. COA from James Spence Authentications.
