Description

From the archives of “The Dean of American Sports Cartooning” is this original Willard Mullin artwork of Yankees slugger Mickey Mantle. This circa 1958 keepsake entitled ”The Big Spender” measures approximately 15x22 and details the contract negotiations of Mantle. The ornate pencil sketching is accompanied by numerous editing notations on the front and black grease pencil markings on the reverse. Mullin (d.1978) added his endorsement on the bottom right corner. Suitable for framing, this display piece is a nice addition for the original art collector.
