My father recently purchased a few baseballs at an estate auction of a former player that had passed away. While he was interested in the jewelry, he picked up the balls for me knowing I'm a passionate collector.
Upon receiving them, i recognized the squiggles of Kenesaw Mountain Landis and could read a "TJ Hickey" fairly easily. I dont know who Hickey or the others are, but i definitely know who Landis is.
It would cost $100 to authenticate it with PSA. My few questions are:
1) Does it look era appropriate?
2) Likely authentic or no?
3) who are the others on the ball?
4) worth the $100 gamble sending to PSA?
ANY INSIGHT would be tremendously helpful in deciding what i do next. Thanks guys. I've included scans of all panels and markings/stamps/flaws
