i have an official 1986 World Series Ball signed by The Boston Red Sox. Does it have a monetary value
Hi and thanks for choosing Just Answer.Is it signed by the whole team? How's the condition of the ball? What condition are the signatures? All dark and legible or have some faded?Thanks,Diana
It is signed by the whole team. The ball is in good condition. It has always been protected by a cover and out of any light. Some of the signatures are very light and may be unintelligible, however, the majority are very good including Roger Clements.
Thanks!Based on that description, the ball is probably in good to very good condition. The signatures will grade a bit lower because some are light. Based on all the signatures and my records, a 1986 ball in very good condition with a fairly good grade on a the signatures should have a current market estimate in the range of $150 to $200. If 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
