"I see no added value in having a modern day signature style on a vintage ball, in fact, I wouldnt even want it in my collection. If you want to get Carew in person, I would keep it on a current ball, but you can still get his vintage signature on…"

What to do.....?

So, as I previously posted in another thread, I had stated I am going to the H.O.F weekend in Cooperstown. Thanks to some great advice from here, I decided to try and purchase some "era correct" baseballs. Unfortunately, because I do NOT have an Unlimited budget, I was only able to get a couple of "National League" baseballs. Freeney I think his name is) I really do want Rod Carew....is it a horrible idea to have him sign one of those balls....or should I just have him sign a "modern" ball? The…See More

"if your goal is to fill your collection immediately, then yes, you can spend 400 or so on a nice Mantle ball (no inscription).   But I have purchased, in the last two years, a perfect 10 Mantle ball for under 300 on Ebay.  Same with…"

"A Mickey mantle autographed ball may cost more than 500 depending on inscriptions and condition of the signature, but if you look for one, you can find a nice ball for the right price. In Cooperstown though there are many memorabilia shops, but very…"

"The most valuable, currently, of the 3 is Mantle.  For 500, if you are patient, you could get a Mantle and a Williams for about that amount, perhaps a little more.  But I wouldn't purchase it up in Cooperstown, it will be overpriced,…"

Mantle, Dimaggio or Williams.

When I go to Cooperstown for the H.O F weekend, I am going to be in the market for a vintage autographed ball....I believe I want a Mantle,Dimaggio or Williams ball. My hope is to someday be able to get one of each (depending on my future budge) So, if you were to buy only one ball, who would it be. (Figure around a $500 budget)

"Pete, the folks on here have given you some good advice. Decide whether this is an "investment" or a "collection". If it is a collection, get the players you like off of that list. If you are near any minor league parks, buy the…"

"Chuck, back when Mickey was signing for $25, it took you 2-3 days to earn that amount. That is why you didn't have a case of baseballs with you."

Chuck Palsa replied to Pete Carelli's discussion Starting an autograph baseball collection....
"Rod Carew recently dodged a health issue. I would place him as #1 on my list. Try to find an "era appropriate" ball for him to sign. Having his sig on a  modern-day ball takes a bit of the shine away. These older balls are around -…"
