I have already purchased this baseball so no going back if I’ve made an error in judgement but with a $150 price tag, I couldn’t resist grabbing this purported 1996 Yankees Team Signed World Series Ball. Got it at an online auction house without the backing of any COA or LOA, but with my untrained eye, no glaring red flags stuck out at me so I took a shot.
I welcome any thoughts or opinions should you have them and thank you all in advance for your time and interest!
Great eye on that Rivera! Doesn’t look like bleeding or pen pressure induced does it ? I’ve seen a lot sharper signatures out of most of this team but I appreciate your thoughts.
I would need to see a super closeup to be sure. It's just big enough now that it looks like it **may** be traced over, but not big enough to have high confidence.
it also looks like Oneill signed twice, once in blue and then over it in black. Strange ball to be sure, many of the signatures look good, but I don't like the Torre.
