From the personal collection of former major league catcher Rick Dempsey comes this intriguing triple-exposure photograph from his rookie season in 1951. The unique, 12-by-20-inch print displays three images of Mantle batting from the right side of the plate, in a fascinating printing process that gives the photograph an unusual texture and adds bronze highlighted areas. Those kinds of considerations notwithstanding, it's a blazing blue Sharpie Mickey Mantle autograph in the bottom of the three images that carries the day, a blazing 9/10 to 10/10 monster from the great Hall of Famer. The triple-exposure photo is then matted in a distinctive black and white format and nicely framed with acrylic protection to overall dimensions of 17 1/2-by-26 inches. All elements appear to be in essentially as-issued and problem-free condition. Comes with a Letter of Authenticity from Upper Deck Authenticated (hologram affixed to the image).
