I have a 1954/1955 Boston Red Sox ( team autographed ) baseball.The" sweet spot " name isXXXXX; Harry Agganis ( passed away later that season )All the names are XXXXX XXXXX ink. Could you please give me an appraisal of this item?
As of now I haven't thought about trying
anything but with yesterdays "Fenway Park's"
100th anniversary I went to ebay today and saw your offer for an appraisal. I will have one of my kids take a picture at some point but as of now I don't have a photo that I could add
to this file.
Hi and thanks for choosing Just Answer.I think I can worth without a photo.Was is signed by the entire team? Is it a game ball? How is the condition of the ball? What is the condition of the signatures? Can you read all of them clearly or have some faded?Thanks,Diana
It was signed by the entire team ( manager Lou Boudreau );
Yes i,t was a game ball ;
When I got this ball ,my dad coated it with a clear type coating which preserved
the condition of the ball and signatures which can be read clearly (none of them seem to have faded);
Thanks!Based on that description, the ball is probably in good to very good condition. The signatures will grade a bit higher because they are easily read. Based on all the signatures and my records, a '54-55 game ball in very good condition with a very good grade on a the signatures should have a current market estimate in the range of $300 to $400. Since you’re interested in selling the baseball, you'd might consider getting it authenticated. An autograph that is not authenticated by a creditable company won't sell as well, so you definitely want to possibly see about getting it authenticated, graded, and possibly appraised. Two top authenticators are PSA/DNA, and James Spence Authentic (JSA). They're 2 of the go-to associations.For selling it, you might contact Steiner Sports. They do some authentication, but they also buy/sell items. You might also consider contacting Heritage. They deal a lot in baseball memorabilia. Auctions generally do very well with them and they come highly recommended.There's also: http://www.lelands.comhttp://scpauctions.com/Both have experience in baseball memorabilia.Once you have certificates you might consider Ebay, but definitely use a reserve. If I can be of any further help or you need something more, don't hesitate to contact me. Please click accept and one of the smiles if I have been of any help, since this is the only way we are compensated by JA. Thanks and have a great weekend,Diana
