Man kinda tough... my gut says no on all of them but they’re not horrible forgeries if they are. Don’t like the swooping r on the Seaver or the K or J on the Griffey. However, they could just be bad examples but authentic. I think the Berra looks okay but he’s so easy to fake and whitey’s signature is all over the place anymore so would depend on when the ball was signed. I would personally hold off on any of them but I could see them going either way.

Also Griffey changed his signature quite a bit when he was young so it’s possible that’s how he signed at that point. It looks like he was going with the straight J which lines up with when he likely signed the ball (early 90’s). He didn’t start swooping the J until 94 or 95 I believe.

I thought they all looked good! These are not highly forged autos are they??? If so not much of a "risk vs reward " type thing. The Seaver is a great example I thought.

That's what I thought initially... Like the poster above, I didn't like the R at the end.

I thought the Whitey Yogi was a decent example also. These looked like they were older... I think the Whitey was on a Giamatti ball.

I don't know Griffey very well, looks older to me, who the heck would get that photoball signed now

I think they're fine. Ford has been known to be forged from time to time but Griffey and seaver and Yogi were really never targeted. I just posted some authentic ones that I've gotten in person. You can compare them.

Really appreciate it... There are alot on ebay also where Whitey comes straight down with the Y as opposed to the swoop

A legitimate concern, but not to worry. He'd come down straight with the y from time to time.

I think Whitey/Yogi is good. The others could definitely go either way, so you may want to refrain, and go after more clear-cut examples.

Default look good

All three baseballs are fine. They are examples of each player's signature from the early-to-mid 90s.
