READ THIS BEFORE YOU POST, THANKS.

Found these baseballs when cleaning out stuff. would appreciate thoughts as to authenticity. Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle, JOE DiMaggio and cal Ripken Jr. before I spend $$ getting authenticated would like folks’ opinions if it’s worth attempting to do so. Thanks in advance this is my first post.

these were apparently ordered from a Lillian Vernon catalogs in the early 90s

Negatory on the Mantle and DiMaggio.

By the way... I never heard of signed memorabilia being sold through Lillian Vernon catalog. Interesting. 

Thank you - yes actually my parents said one of my aunts sold Lillian Vernon stuff and they bought these at a discount directly through the catalog.  I got these for Christmas one year and just found them recently after cleaning out a bedroom.  Mantle is expensive to authenticate so I appreciate the thoughts.

These forgery styles were distributed through Home Shopping Network and other outlets like that. Obviously the seller didn’t know they were bad; they were scammed by the distributor who provided these. So it doesn’t surprise me that Lillian Vernon would have them, I just never heard of it before.

Mantle and DiMaggio are fake.  Mays looks ok.  Ripken, I would lean toward no.

Thanks, appreciate your perspective.

Doesn't get any worse than these. However, I agree with Steve.The Mays looks alright.

No on the dimaggio

mays looks good IMO

ripken bothers me

i don’t know enough about mantle, but it looks slow and methodical to me

UPDATE: Mantle, DiMaggio and MAYS failed!

Ripken was real.  Thanks ALL!

Ripken was real?  

Yikes.  

Yes got PSA cert.  

Ha ha, honestly having seen this thread now, I would have presumed they all were "Operation Bullpen" Marino specials.
