I have a baseball...

I have a baseball that I have for 40 years. It is autographed by a dozen American League players, AlStar's and some Hall of Famers .(EX. Brooks Robinson, Boog *****, ***** Conigliaro and Micky Mantle. Would describe the condition of the ball as between a 6-8 with 10 being in perfect shape. Thankyou.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

No, I dont think so.

Thank you. Please allow a few minutes for me to research current values and type my complete answer.

Ask Your Own Antiques Question

Adding up the values of the signatures and the fact that they are all together on one baseball, the estimated retail value is $8150-10,500 without a certificate of authenticity.

Collectors will want a certification.

This service will provide an authentication certification for you.

Certification of Baseballs

http://www.psacard.com/Services/AutographedBaseballProcess/

Ultimately, to obtain these retail values we assume the piece or set is in good condition and that the final value depends on sale geographic location.

In general, a private seller to a dealer, via consignment or at auction can expect 30-50% of estimated retail value.

Insurance replacement values are usually about 20%-50% more than retail values.

All my answers are quoted in USA dollars.
