Areas of Mantle's upper body have been creatively outlined with various editing materials, separating him from the background and creating a soft glow around the Hall of Famer. Some modest wear to corners is evident and wrinkling is present at the top edge which also exhibits a small tear and a chip from within the border. Several handwritten notations are present on verso which also shows evidence of tape residue at the bottom edge. A Field Enterprises credit stamp appears in blue, with red date stamping from the Sun Times from September 15, 1961. Authenticated and Encapsulated as a Type 1 photo by PSA/DNA.
