Encapsulated and graded GEM MINT 9.5 by BGS, with Autographs Authenticated and graded "10" by Beckett. Hall of Famer. During the 1990's, "chase" card inserts became an extremely popular trend in the collecting industry. In those early times, some were just gimmicky ploys to sell more packs (the cutting up of a valuable vintage card, for example, and offering a small piece of it in a card-sized display). Others, however, were immediately recognized as classy and desirable offerings. Presented here is a formidable example of the latter type, a 1994 Upper Deck insert with attractively rendered likenesses of Mickey Mantle and Ken Griffey, Jr., as well as the black ink signatures of both stars. The Mantle/Griffey inserts were randomly distributed in packs and bore either one or both of the players' autographs in editions of just 1,000 copies, apiece. An example like this one, featuring both signatures, represents the most valuable element of the insert promotion. Mickey Mantle passed away in 1995. The card's BGS condition report: Centering: 9.5, Corners: 9, Edges: 9.5, Surface: 10. A UDA authentication hologram (#AUA41846), certifying the authenticity of the signatures, is adhered to the reverse. Gem Mint condition.
