Default Estate Sale; I bought 13 autographed baseballs - I FOUND A GEM

Today I went to an estate sale and bought a group of baseballs. I didn't know who they were signed by but they all looked real. I do not collect baseball, so all of them would be up for sale or trade, if interested, but let me explain.

I was told that most of them were St. Louis Cardinals because this ladies grandson was a bat boy for the team. Some of them are very obvious to pick out.

Todd Zeile was the first I recognized



This one was a little beat up but it looks like Tom Pagnozzi



I will update the others as I get them uploaded, but the last one I think I did pretty good.

Lee Smith - Pitcher



Pedro Guerrero



Bob Tewksbury (Spelling) - That is what it looks like



Joe Torre - Yankees - Former Coach



Lee Smith Marker



Bert Blyleven - Pitcher



Then I found a few more I had to search and search last night to find out, and i found out most of them

Al Kaline



Red Schoendiest



Then this was the last ball

The first signature I could read was Bob Dillinger - So I looked him up and looked what teams he played on, and he played on the 1951 Chicago White Sox team for one year. I continued to look at the ball and it is signed by a bunch of players, but the pen is really faded. So I continued to look to see what players were on the ball



As you can see there were a few more signatures here, One had a J and a E for the first and last name. I looked at all the roster and found Joe Erautt played for the Chicago White Sox in 1951 the only year that Dillinger played for them. So I was pumped, because that was the first year that one Hall of Famer made his first ever All Star appearance.



So I continued to look on the ball to find more and more signatures, This is who I can make out because it is very, very faded

Billy Pierce - Pitcher
Joe Erautt - Catcher
Bob Dillinger - Infielder
Don Lenhardt - Outfielder
Bud Stewart - Outfielder

and this one you can read plain as day, NELSON FOX



I will listen to offers, let me know if your interested in trading or trying to buy these items.

The ball with Nelson Fox has about 20 signatures on it, but they are very faded. You can see them all on in my photobucket.

Get that thing to psa/DNA ASAP!

Whatever the offer, it will not be as much without certification.

The cost before shipping to and from will be $150.

Is it authentic? Yes.

Is it worth it to get authenticated at that cost? That's your call.

Team-signed balls aren't incredibly valuable in great condition, this example is really poor judging from the photos.

here's a good reference for you though there are more total signatures and they're a lot clearer in this one. Still I think it is a good idea to spend the money and get it authenticated. Other team signed baseballs from the 40's and 50's that are not authenticated with faded signatures you'd probably be looking at a $50-80 Ebay sale

One positive about the autograph's being faded is although it can be faked it is very reasonable to expect from a ball thato ld.

you will find it easier to read those if you get a black light and a dark room. Cool find

Unless it is big name, I wouldn't spend on sending to psa. The cost of psa might be more than the signature is worth.

hopefully he got the lot for a very good deal. Surprised the team baseball, even though faded, went for $76. With offering to pay for shipping as well as the Ebay and Paypal fees probably getting about $55 for it
