Default Post your favorite baseballs...

There are always threads on the other side about recent acquisitions and our favorite cards, but I don't believe I have ever seen a thread about our favorite baseballs. So, if you would like to, post pictures (and possibly stories) of your favorite autographed baseballs, trophy baseballs, game used baseballs, etc...

Here are a few of mine...
1. 1922-23 Yankees team signed ball with a sweet spot Ruth. Also contains Dugan, Scott, Schang, Ward, McNally, Hoyt, among others (17 signatures total)...I had always wanted a Babe Ruth signed baseball and my mom and grandmother purchased this one for my college graduation!

2. Earlier 1900's Vermont University trophy baseball

3. 1938 Sioux City trophy ball that appears to be signed by players and then later traced over

4. 1929-31 Yankees team signed ball with a faint sweet spot Ruth. Also contains Lazzeri, Wells, and other faint signatures...(appearing in BST section)...

Looking forward to your stories and pictures...

I'm disappointed that this thread didn't take off. Here are a couple of my favorites:

Bob Feller signed/used ball while in the service

Some of Early Wynn's signed victory balls (have several, always looking for more)

A Ronald Reagan signed ball that I got for a song.

I took a bit of a leap of faith when I bought this baseball in a well-known auction house's event about 12-13 years ago. The writing on the sweet spot reads "Caught in Cleveland during 3rd game of 1954 World Series."

In addition to the autographs of Giants players Hank Thompson, Willie Mays, Johnny Antonelli, Ruben Gomez, Bill Taylor and Don Mueller, there also are signatures of Giants legend Carl Hubbell and comedian Joe E. Brown. There's little doubt in my mind that the writing on the sweet spot and the autographs were placed on the ball in the same time frame. I figure if this ball was created to deceive, adding the signature of Brown, and to a lesser extent, Hubbell, was a stroke (pun intended) of brilliance.

There's no way to positively prove this ball was used the in the '54 Series, but I'm satisfied to think it was.

Default Favorite baseballs

Here's mine:
Nolan Ryan 4th no-hitter signed game ball used in this iconic photo shoot after the game. This game tied Nolan with Sandy Koufax for what was the most all-time no-hitter games at the time (4) en route to Ryan's new standard of 7 career no-no's.

The ball was inscribed and given as a gift to So Cal sports photographer Frank Worth that shot the attached photo that I mentioned earlier. The inscription is what makes the ball "To Frank, Best Wishes- Glad you were here for the 4th (no-hitter). Hope you're here for the 5th".

Default A couple of my favorites

The Greenberg signature is one of my favorites just because it is vintage and on a Harridge baseball. It is signed to a person who sold him clothes. The Pullium (although not signed by anyone) is a favorite just because it is not seen too often.
