PSA 7??? What does a PSA 5 and below look like...completely faded away?

As a kid, I often dreamed about owning an autographed baseball signed by a legendary player like Babe Ruth. As the years pass, and I see how bad these autos fade, I am starting to change my mind regarding wanting autographed baseballs. :(

Well, PSA didn't grade the auto, so not sure why the title says PSA 7. It's the seller who claims it is a 6 or 7...

As for the fading, it you keep the baseball out of direct sunlight or fluorescent light and in a UV ballcube, I wouldn't expect an 80 year old autograph to fade any further.

You're probably right. Thank you.

I wonder if its GUed by Ruth, or the person who got it signed? Personally, I would prefer a ball that had some wear on it. I think it adds to the antiquity of it.

I'm thinking the Cut 1/1 are added to get ebay hits (views). It allows the seller to use the terms that draw a lot of views and still the auction title is correct.
