I had a Pete Rose signed baseball in a plastic cube holder stored in a closet in a back room that I didn't keep air-conditioned and it got mold spots on it. I have now drilled small holes on either side of the cube to let the cube breathe and I make sure to keep the balls in an air-conditioned environment

Default Storing autographed baseball

There are two ways to store BB's: 1) not going to display BB's - cool, dark low humidity area preferably a closet (no windows, no sunlight). If you are going to display - a cool, dry, low humidity room with UV protected glass and a dehumidifier in the room. I have several hundred autographed baseballs stored both ways with minimal issues. I would also recommend OMLB BB's, signing with ball point pen (vs. sharpie), not handle the BB's, all will extend the life of both the ball and the autograph. The moisture and oils from your skin will impact the BB over time. I have slight toning spots from the leather on some of the older BB's due to leather issues however overall they are in outstanding shape over four decades+.

Here's what I do. First, I ditch the original packaging and tissue unless it's visually interesting and displayable. I keep the best examples of all my packaging separately. The reason for this is that original boxes are loaded with acid. I wrap my collection individually in acid free tissue and store them in acid free document boxes. I don't have a display currently so this is my temporary solution. Fortunately, if it turns into a long term solution, I've covered my butt by using long term materials. And, as stated by Jimmy, cool and dry are the best place to store. If you can find or create as consistent a climate as possible that would be best.

I don't like plastic holders because the baseballs need to breathe. They're ok for temporary use and transport, but I don't like them long term. The acid free tissue allows air to circulate and slows down any environmental changes.

This is absolutely the BEST way to store anything! Those plastic holders leach fumes which will, in the long term, probably damage your material. Try the company: UNIVERSITY PRODUCTS.
