Q on autographed balls value

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Their autograph worth has nothing to do with play on the field, it has to do with supply and demand.

For example, since 2000, Willie Mays has done 35 autograph signings. Pedro has done 3, all private signings. Bonds has also done 3. With one coming last year and the first two coming in 2000 and 2001.

So, you can see why Mays is much cheaper.

Neither Pedro or Bonds sign at the ballyard either.

That's pretty nifty. I'd have never imagined such a huge differential.

I got Bonds to sign for me during spring traing - it was a couple of years back - probably 2000 or so, but still...

That looks pretty close to what a certain price guide reads. There's other determining factors like the "Fluidity" of the signature, legiblity, color, type of pen/sharpie used etc. But for a ballpark estimate these look about right from a Collectors view. ;-D
