I picked up this 500 Homerun Club Signed Baseball recently but not sure how well I did in my determination that it looked to good and was too cheap to pass up. The ball, which I could only view online, came with a "coa" from Phil Castinettis Sports World, which I have to say was a first for me. I'd wager the ball is probably more desirable without the coa but wanted to know what you more seasoned HOF autograph experts thought about these signaturpes and if there is any chance they look ok to you. I also have another DiMaggio for you all to look at but will make a separate post for that one. Many thanks in advance and hope you all are staying safe and well.
the ball is authentic, and Phil Castinettii is a reputable dealer.
Thanks for the prompt reply, and always happy to hear when it's in my favor. Thank you again for always taking the time. Mean a lot man
Terrier: this is a DiMaggio with similar COA. are you the same in your analysis of it's authenticity? I wish I had better photos but this is it until it arrives
the Dimaggio is also authentic
I don't who Phil is, but like Terrier commented, def authentic.
Thanks Chris for your thoughts on the ball. I have a DiMaggio which may not be so clearly authentic. Not sure whether to make an entirely separate post on it so here it is .....Screenshot_20200819-075324%7E2.png
Any thoughts Chris ? Same COA
The Joe D. is also authentic as Terrier commented. I love that-style DiMaggio.
Just reading your description about a 500 HR Club baseball (commonly forged item) and how it was too cheap to pass up (another red flag) I was expected a very different result. But this looks good to me.
