This is the famous Richard Gallo photo which Mantle liked so much he had a painting commissioned from the photo. The great piece is that painting lithograph of a young Mickey Mantle sitting in the dugout. 

This is one of the most famous shots of Mickey Mantle ever in a baseball uniform. It was shot by Ray Gallo in 1956, and depicts Mickey Mantle sitting in the dugout with a big grin on his face. This photograph has been accepted by the Hall Of Fame in Cooperstown, from a selection of over 25 years. Mickey claimed this photo to be "the greatest photograph I've ever seen of myself." Gallo refers to this photo as "a contrast to the greatness and mightiest power of all baseball."

Mantle has signed in large bold blue marker and added "No 7". This wonderful piece comes with a copy of the ticket for the Mantle event in Worcester, MA in 1993 where he did the in-person signing. This particular item has been mounted on a poster back board and was used for display in a sport memorabilia store. Very nice and nice condition.

Same as our other one except this one was mounted to a poster board along the bottom and top edges. Could be removed.   Also, in this one he added his "No. 7".  These are now selling online for over $1500 and over $3000 at collectible retail locations.
