Is this signed ball legit?
Hi all. I saw this on eBay and would love to get your opinions. I know these kinds of 500 hr club balls are likely rife with fraudulent pieces, but most of these signatures look legit to me. What do you think?

The Mantle looks shaky and slowly drawn with what I believe is called banana Mantle style Mís. No good.

That ball is totally bad IMO. Every signature looks bad to me.

I wouldn't even dream of bidding on it!

Harmon Killebrew was famous for taking his time and giving beautiful, perfect autographs. It was very important to him. I have never seen a Killebrew as sloppy as the one on that ball.

Don't look at the Mantle, look at that awful Ernie Banks

Frank Robby missed a few letters as well. Even in his old age, he still tried to spell it all out

I was going to say the same thing. Ernie on his worst day would never sign like that.

Excellent. Thanks for the heads up! Iím glad there are so many experts here.

As a Giants collector, I can tell you McCovey is no good either. Every single one is probably a forgery.

Unfortunately, It's legitimately:D HORRIBLE.
