Default Early Mickey Mantle Signed Ball?

I bought this ball at the flea market today,for a good enough price that I was willing to roll the dice on it. The ball is from the 50's, signature looks similar to his late 50's to 1963. I thought clubhouse signature was only on team balls, never seen a single CH. Let me know if you guys have any info. Thanks.

Yeah the more I look at the ball the more it looks fake, but this 63 team ball signature does look similar to mine or am I reaching a little bit.

Your auto is signed later. His auto is a 50-60's version. Just because the two do not look the same does not rule out its authenticity.

And i agree. I never said a word about his being real or fake, i just said here is mine to compare.

Yeah. The ball is definitely f'd up but the sig looked ok. I think there are some teeth marks on the other side of the ball. lol.
Right on for the pic, I'm familiar with the micks later signature ( nicest autograph in all sports,IMO. ) but it was the earlier auto I was trying to get info on. I did a little research but it's so hard, there are some autos that look totally fake but are psa/jsa authentic , and there are some that look great but they are clubhouse Thanks again for the info guys.

I would say no. Not a Mantle expert, just looks drawn on, especially where the K is it looks like the pen went over that area more than once. Also the C is the same think. It is pointed but also rounded. The pen went back over to fix the bad area. Just My opinion. As was said post it on net 54
