Hi,

My name is***** have been dealing in autographs for 40 years. The best place to get this certified is PSA. Items with PSA certs do well at auction. http://www.psacard.com/services/autographauthentication/

Genuine balls are selling for $800-1200 at auction and retail for $2000.

Thanks,

Wayne

i thought you could authenticate this item. I knew what the potential value was and did not have to waste any monies to reconfirm this.So i believe i wasted our time.

Hi,

I'n my opinion, Yogi Berra and Mickey Mantle's autographs are consistent with other genuine examples from the same time period. I think if you submit this to get certified, you will be successful.

Good luck,

Wayne
