Hi!  I'm looking for experienced opinions on whether the autographs of Mickey Mantle and Yogi Berra are authentic?

These are good, and would almost certainly pass professional authentication. Looks like Mick slipped in one spot, but otherwise has all the characteristics I examine for. Nice ball!

yes they are authentic


Thank you everyone!  So helpful.  I will be posting more balls in the near future.

Nice authentic ball! I have never seen the Mick make a mistake with his “M” like that. I think that adds some additional value for uniqueness.

Thank you, that is interesting to know!

I should add, all the balls I have posted are from the collection of a deceased family member, who I think was likely duped when buying many of them. I'm learning as I go, but any reply, even if it's to say it's a blatantly obvious forgery, is appreciated - just to affirm my suspicions and determine whether I need to bother following up or seriously authenticate any of these. I know it can be quite a process and expensive to get them professionally appraised, so I would rather avoid doing so if the answer is obvious to experienced collectors. I've been appalled at what I've learned so far about the level of fraud in this hobby!  

Thank you!
