Hopefully someone will see this mixed with David Lewis’ 48 posts...
Lmao, too funny DR. Here is an Upper Deck autograph which are usually very good to compare. One thing to watch for on baseballs is what were called “clubhouse” signatures where anyone could and would help the “team” sign the ball. So basically anyone could sign to fill the ball in if somebody wasn’t around to sign.
I am pretty sure that is a facsimile/pre printed ball with what appears to be an ink sig of Dizzy Dean. Not sure if the Dean is real. Hopefully someone will chime in. Used to see these with the sigs traced over with a pen back in the day.
I agree, these look like stamped signatures. All the same color with the same aging. The Dean is written in ink, but does look different than his signature I am used to seeing. Why would there be a Dean signature on a Yankees ball?
