Recommended Posts

Hi, my grandpa just died RIP and he left me a team autographed mint condition inaugural season football?. I tried to find some like it on eBay to guage the value, condition etc. But I can't find another one like it anywhere. Hense my question, how rare\valuable is this and were can I take it to get its authenticity checked out??

Rare/Valuable? Without a certificate, it's not "worth" anything. Is it rare? Depends on the signatures that are on it. Unless there's some high profile players, even getting it authenticated isn't going to bring the value up any.

 

If you can take some pictures, I may be able to give you an idea of what a collector may pay for it.

Even then, if it's a one of a kind item, it would be hit and miss. 

 

Basically, it depends on what signatures are on the ball, and what condition those signatures are in. If there's anybody of note in good condition, might be worth something. Essentially, the ball as a whole means little, the value will come from each individual signature on the ball, with each signature of worth that is authentic and in good condition, adding to the value more than it would be on their own, based on rarity of the two players signing the same thing.

 

There's a lot of variables here, if you have any players of note there, it would be best to go to a specialist and have them authenticate it for you.

I have things that my Grandfather left me and also some that were given to me later. I don't know what your plans are but no amount of money could buy these items from me. If it was some ungodly amount of money I guess but I put a higher value on these things that money can't buy. Just me I guess.

    • I'm here and thanks for getting this one set up.  It is a bit strange to lock the other long-lasting thread.  Ironically, it happened on the same day this happened -    https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2021/05/angels-release-albert-pujols.html   Not sure if this is the end of his career or not.  He will clear waivers and I'm sure the Angels will then release him.  Not the way he envisioned his career ending...BUT, someone may pick him up to finish out the season.  Would love to see him return to St. Louis for a curtain call, but it's a hard fit with Goldschmidt at first base and no DH in the NL.   This also from yesterday's news -    https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/31308409/willie-mays-90-was-steph-curry-michael-jordan-simone-biles-mikhail-baryshnikov   Oldest living Hall of Famer...can't believe he's 90!!  Makes me feel old, too!
    • Do you see how our CULTURE and team mindset jumps off the screen? And now we're getting more athletic. We not falling behind anything.
    • I know the original post was more so relative to the rest of the conference (that is a lot better now). I know. It's a fair question. I just don't get why some people are saying we've fallen off a cliff lol.    I think we edge the division over TEN and make it to AT LEAST the second round. I worry about KC, BAL, and Buffalo. Kinda CLE, but not too much. Kinda LV lowkey, but not much. The Chargers don't scare me JUST yet. Jags, not yet. Steelers fell off I think.
    • Title speaks for itself.    Anything could happen from Tyrod having his moment, to an utter dumpster fire. I say 3-6 wins and last place in the south.    We should include our predictions for the AFCS I pick the Titans and Colts as 1 and 2 with both making the playoffs and jags close to a .500 record. Although with 17 games it will be hard to land on that record.
    • The dilemma is do we bank on Fisher recovering quick enough to not miss any/a significant amount of time and hope he's still able to play at a high level when he gets back? Or do we go with Leno that almost certainly guarantees an average to above average level of performance that, unless something happens between now and the start of TC, will be healthy to start the season?   High risk/High reward with Fisher. Low risk/Medium reward with Leno.   Fisher playing at his prior high level is the absolute best case scenario with us, although not exactly likely with the injury he's recovering from. Even if physically recovered, the mental aspect typically adds an element of hesitancy that can be devastating for a player's performance, especially at a position like LT. If we go with Fisher, I don't think we'll get Fisher playing at a pre-injury level and with his recent string of significant injuries, I'm a bit wary of his ability to stay healthy at his age.
