Description



Amazing test, indeed! As the text explains, "At Yankee Stadium, Mickey Mantle, one of the great power hitters of modern baseball stepped to the plate. To the back of his bat was strapped a Timex Marlin watch. 50 times a ball was pitched to the Yankee slugger. 50 times, he sent scorching drives to all corners of the park. Then, in the presence of witnesses, Mickey examined the Timex watch. It was running—and still on time!" The 10x13 ad appeared in the Saturday Evening Post and was later graced with Mantle's blue-Sharpie "9-10" signature. Apparent EX-MT within a 15x18 frame. Full LOA from JSA.
