"Thanks, Fudd!  Appreciate it. I got it for $350. I was well aware of the toning, but couldn't resist the autograph. This other Mantle ball, which is much whiter, I bought from the same person last year."

"very nice John. Great dark Pen signature! If it wasn't brown toned spotted Rocky Racoon, it would be something I'd like LOL. Maybe in 20 years the entire ball will tone and it will look better. I'm sure you got a nice price on it too…"
