Artist Brian Johnson is primarily known for his affiliation with Sports Impressions limited-edition commemorative plates. Although we have yet to find a Mantle plate matching this 20"-diameter painting, the circular shape and the time frame suggest similar origins—perhaps even an unproduced version. Regardless of the mystery back-story, Johnson's bright, vivid piece captures Mantle in his element and encapsulates the legend's statistical career. Nicely matted and framed to 30" square.
