Take hold of this handsome 1958-1962 Hartland Mantle statue and you will always be able to view this revered baseball demi-god. Standing freely and easily, this nearly pristine plastic icon is an early type without magnets in the feet. Housed in its original factory box, this well-preserved collectible presents EX and is accompanied by an original catalog brochure and the correct “large” size bat.
The box has a somewhat aged appearance, it remains complete although all flaps are attached with tape. The colors and graphics are distinct, positioning this cardboard carton as showing approximate GD details. The front and back panels feature game action artwork which wraps around to the side panels, each of which has a black & white Mantle photo at top. The top and bottom flaps are decorated identically with facsimile signature and the term “Mr. Yankee”, along with bat, ball and glove artwork. The fold-out catalog brochure presents VG-EX with crisp surfaces and features collectibles that are available from Hartland that year.
