Default I Need Some IP Help

I'm going to my much anticipated meet and greet tomorrow with Jackie Bradley Jr. My main concern is, I have 5 brand new OMLBs and if I'm able to get all of them signed, should I? I'm just thinking, I may save them and wait for when Billy Hamilton, Wil Myers, Dylan Bundy and other big prospects come into town. Don't get me wrong, I probably won't get to meet them but is it worth saving the balls with the on chance that I do meet them. Any input would be greatly appreciated

You could always just buy more baseballs. I'd get them all signed if I were you (if possible) but in my experiences players usually don't wanna sign five items for one person.

Well with past experiences at this show, you can jump back in line if you want. I'm only really asking because I know some times when you get an auto the value of a 16 dollar ball actually goes down. I'm just hoping that wouldn't be the case with this

The value won't go down, it would only go down if its a scrub

Yea with JBJ the value shouldn't go down. Will there be any authentication services on site to put a little sticker on the ball or anything? That adds value and saves you time and money from having to send to PSA/JSA.

I mean, I figured that but I'm afraid they wouldn't be too valuable because they're in person autos without any coa. Alot of people stray away from signatures without a certificate

That's exactly what I'm afraid of. I don't want that to happen. And it doesn't come with coa. It's a fanfest type of deal so they don't do that. I'm gonna take some pics of him signing and stuff I that'll help

Photos will help. Make sure to watermark them with your username or something like that so that no one can take your photo's and use them to sell forgeries.

If it were me, I would get two signed. One for yourself, one to sell if he hits it big down the road. You won't get much for it being IP with no COA, but you'd get something. Keep the other baseballs for other prospects that may come to town.

Personally, I would love a JBJ auto ball and would work with you to get one signed for me but I couldn't pay you more than basically the cost of the ball and shipping. It wouldn't be worth it to you. IP autos are tough items to move.

if you are that worried about the value of the ball, dont get any. I mean, if this is a re-sell investment thing, its not going to be worth your time.

Ive been to that event at the Pawsox...they are pretty tight about 1 per but you can always jump back into line.
I would only get 2 done and save the rest for another player down the road
