At the first Mantle autograph show in 1978, admission was $4 and he charged $3 per autograph. As many as you wanted!
My new Forbes story.
WOW, More signed Mantle Photo's than I have!!!!! Great story and a nice way to end it telling his kids he wants them to sell it all. Son Had No interest. Happens all too much these days as the kids could give a S*** about baseball cards or autographs. It's a dying sport my friends.
Cards maybe....but I think autographs will be around forever.
