Collectibles Chat: Liberating a Mickey Mantle signed photo

I have been blogging and writing magazine articles about autograph collecting in general since the mid-90s. I can't believe it's been almost 25 years!

My latest adventure is trying my hand at videos. While I am a professional authenticator specializing in astronaut autographs, my videos will be a mix of space-related and more general for a wider range of interests.

With that, I invite you to check out the first episode of "Collectibles Chat," which focuses on removing a Mickey Mantle signed photo from an old plaque.

Please be sure to "like" the video and subscribe to my channel if you are inclined. Thanks for watching and any feedback is welcome.

Thanks!  I found a nice Payne Stewart autograph at a pawn shop on one of these.  The positive thing these relics have going for them is that they kept the photos nice.

@Gregory S - Yes! I have heard stories of the photo and/or signature adhering to the plastic sheet. However, if it does not, and it's not faded, the photo itself should be mint. :-)
