A collection of super-rare signed contracts for some of baseball’s biggest names — including Mickey Mantle and Hank Aaron — is up for sale … and they’re all expected to go for insane prices!!
RR Auction tells TMZ Sports … Mantle’s 1953 deal with the New York Yankees (with a $17,500 salary) headlines the lot … and the historic pieces of paper are estimated to land a $50k price tag.
Mantle’s contract is signed “Mickey C. Mantle” … in which the legend agrees to provide “skilled services as a baseball player during the year 1953,” according to the paperwork.
“As one of Mantle’s early Yankees contracts from a World Series season, this is an absolutely spectacular, museum-quality piece,” Bobby Livingston of RR Auction says.
On top of Mantle’s piece of history, Aaron’s Atlanta Braves contract for the 1974 season — when he became the all-time home runs leader over Babe Ruth — is also available … and could fetch more than $10k!!
Worth noting … Aaron’s contract was worth $220k for the ’74 season. He later became the highest-paid player in the MLB in 1975, when his salary jumped to $240k.
There are a bunch of other signed contracts in the lot from legends like Rod Carew, Whitey Ford, Bob Feller and more … and they’re all available until June 10 on the RR Auction site.
