On February 7, 1963, Mantle became the fifth ballplayer to be paid $100,000, after Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio, Stan Musial and Willie Mays. Here, with the Ol' Perfesser looking over his shoulder, Mickey signs that historic first six-digit contract. The large, highly displayable photo rates NM and features Mantle's flawless blue-Sharpie "10" signature, "Mickey Mantle / 1st $100,000." According to our consignor, this example represents one of just three such signed "100K" photos in existence. Full photo LOA from JSA.
