Long since retired from the game he so thoroughly dominated, Mickey Mantle was back in the New York spotlight with the opening of his sports bar in 1988. Documented in the “Metropolitan News” section of the February 5, 1988 edition of The New York Times, Mantle’s culinary endeavor was described in text with a black-and-white photo. This particular copy of that Big Apple daily has been autographed by its switch-hitting subject. Framed to 26-1/2 x 18-1/4” under blue matting, the newspaper article is signed in blue Sharpie (“9-10” strength) and comes with a full photo LOA from JSA.
