I recently purchased a PSA/DNA graded gem mint Greg Maddux baseball from Canton and Cooper in California via the internet. The ball is graded 10 overall, 10 auto and 10 for the baseball. The seals are in tact, however, the ball has spots on it in several locations. Pictures are attached. my question is, are the spots a serious issue? I know Bobby Brown Haiti balls can be discolored but had never seen a "gem mint" Allen H Selig ball look like this.
Also I bought a PSA/DNA Willie Mays 9.5 auto, but the seals are not in tact. It came with a LOA with the water mark and appears to be the same ball. I was just wondering about how much the seals being broken affects the value or if you would seriously question the balls authenticity given the seals have been broken (I would understand some one repositioning the ball if it has shifted to a point where the auto was not visible).
Thank you all in advance.
Would you advise me to return the "gem mint" Maddux ball and take it up with the seller as the ball is no longer what the PSA/DNA grading would indicate? It makes me feel like the ball was tampered with, but like I said, the seals are in perfect shape, so I'm perplexed.
The Mays ball was graded a 9 with a 10 signature for a 9.5 overall by PSA. The Mays ball has no spots, only the Maddux ball.
