Ok - My first post here, and I hope to get some decent input. I assume that this is ball is one of Coach's Corner handy-work, but I wanted your opinion:
The markings on the ball have it dated to 1948 - so this would have needed to be signed in the last 8 months of his life. There are a lot of red flags on this one, but I wanted to get some opinions of members of this forum.
I do love when people know an autograph is bad or questionable, promote their item by saying...this authenticator is NOT banned from ebay. Right there it tells you the person selling it knows more than they are letting on.
Welcome Mark ,the E doesn't line with R very well , very clean white ball ,ink, T finishes a little off. I wouldn't buy it. Just my opinion.
Thank you, Sir. This is exactly what I was looking for.
What an outstanding site this is.
Its my pleasure but Im only a fellow collector with limited knowledge on any signature. Just an amateur (like I just posted on another blog) interested in autographs and trying to get it right. Just trying to help and giving my honest opinion not always right (but more right than wrong).
Thank you James,
Very happy to be a part of this forum.
I took the time to read through the previous [November 2014] post about this ball (hadn't realized it was previously listed) and was heartened by Jason's desire to set the record straight on this ball. Shows me the members of this board are of such stuff, that help preserve the playing field for us collectors.
I like how they say they charge a 15% restocking fee.
