+1

His Steiner "Send Your Items In" autographs are ugly.

I probably get at least two Steiner emails a day with their "Special Sales" and there is nothing "Special" about them.

Why would you want a Jeter/Mantle ball? They played in different eras, and had nothing to do with one another. Having Jeter sign a Mantle single will certainly devalue the ball.

I could see wanting to assemble a Yankee "greats" type ball with Mantle, DiMaggio, Berra, Jeter etc...(likely you're not gonna try this with anything signed by Gehrig or Ruth so leaving them out) but specifically only Mantle and Jeter seems a bit odd.

However, as a Yankee fan, still cool. If someones favorite all time Yanks are Jeter and Mantle I could see it.

Just a yankee fan, not into making $$$... my pops favorite player was Mantle and my favorite player was jeter... just curious if anyone has seen that combo, as far as devalue, highly doubt it..... this is what's wrong with autograph collecting these days, it's always about $$... sad for true Collectors's who never sell

Thanks for that info Michael, I just learned something. Not really into contemporary collecting of anything, so the dollars charged are surprising to me, especially for non HOF types.

No disrespect intended, simply wanted to know.

Thanks...

Single-signed balls are worth more than multisigned balls. If you want to have Jeter sign it, do what you want with your collection, but know that the presence of signatures in addition to Mantle's detracts from the value of his autograph.

I don't disagree about the fact that money sometimes gets in the way of collecting, but that is the reality. I have many multisigned items and I can confirm the reality of that situation. By and large multisigned items do not sell for nearly the amount you would expect for the groupings together. Of course there are variables. For example having all of the 500 homerun hitters on a ball would increase the total value, but having just Murray and Schmidt on a ball would be less valuable than separate single balls. Having Jeter and Mantle on a ball will likely sell for less than single signed balls of each, but it is your money and collection. If you wish to spend $1000 to add Jeter to a Mantle, go ahead and enjoy.

Edit: Additionally, this situation has been made worse by the prices Steiner charges. I see their stuff on eBay all the time for half of the original retail price. They create and artificially inflate the prices of items and no one ever seems to get their money back when they go to sell.
