Any original Hartland mold would be cause for collector celebration. But the Mick? The premier prestige statue in the production? And limited-edition #1 to boot? It doesn't get any better than this!
An accompanying 2001 Hartland COA reads, "Hartland Collectibles, L.L.C. proudly certified that this unassembled statue of Mickey Mantle numbered 1/25, was one of the final 25 shots obtained from the original Hartland Plastics mold. Hartland further certifies that following the final shot, the mold was struck and retired and that no additional shots were or will ever be taken from this mold." Dimensions are approximately 20" long x 14" wide, and the set includes two caps, two faces (one detached), two bodies, two arms and two bats. There's a marker notation of "7/16/01 - 1 of 25." NM condition.
