Best Answer

Yes, baseballs were commonly signed by Mickey Mantle and the entire Yankees team throughout Mantle's playing career. However, facsimile team-signed baseballs (with the signatures "stamped" on the ball) were and still are commonly sold.

It can sometimes be difficult to tell the difference between a vintage stamped ball and one that is actually autographed. Considering that a real signed 61 Yankees ball is worth more than $1,000 and a stamped ball is worth about $75, it's important to always do your homework on the item and the seller.

Did Mickey Mantle sign autographs in 1961 and 1962?

Yes Mickey Mantle signed autographs in 1961, and 1962. Although he signed many autographs during his career it has been noted that he did not like to sign team baseballs in the club house. He did state during an interview that players were required to sign a dozen baseballs for the clubhouse man, otherwise you would not get a clean towel.In general the year a signature is signed will not effect the value much unless the date is inscribed.A Mickey Mantle single signed baseball is worth about $400.-$600. Price will vary based on condition, and type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Rare examples of pristine signatures or inscriptions like "The Mick" "HOF 1974" or 536 HR's" could raise the price to the $1,000. price range. Personal inscription like "Good luck Mike" could sell below $400. A rarely signed full name signature "Mickey Charles Mantle" will break the $2,000 price mark as it did in a May 5th 2007 live eBay auction selling for $2,390.After condition the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature will dictate the price. Mickey Mantle was under contract with the Upper-Deck company before he passed away. Baseballs that have the Upper deck hologram could sell in the $1,000.-$1,500. price range. signatures that have not been authenticated could sell at half the market value or less.


How much are New York Yankees team signed baseballs from the years 1956-1961 worth?

According to the collector's price guide, "Team Baseballs," Yankees signed balls from this era are worth between $400-1250, with value being greater or lower depending on exact year and players present - in particular, the inclusion or exclusion of Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris and Casey Stengel - plus the all-important overall condition of the ball and autographs. Other key factors include type of ball (is it an "Official American League" ball?), whether there are any "clubhouse signatures" (autographs signed by ballboys, attendants, etc), and number of signatures present. The authenticity of Mantle, Maris and Stengel's signatures are of particular importance, and a ball from the 1961 season would bring a nice premium. These factors, plus the authenticity of the significant signatures are the main variables in determining value.New York Yankees Team Signed Baseballs Price GuideFor more information on New York Yankees team signed baseballs, links to full team rosters, key signatures, and price guide see Related Links below.
