Leave it toned or clean it up a bit?

How is this done?

Also, if anyone thinks the auto is not authentic, I can still return it. Thoughts?

(It is a Feeney ball)

Hi Casey,
1st of all, your Carl Hubbell signature is 100% authentic.
This is a perfect example of his post-stroke signature.
I would not consider fooling with trying to alter the ball in any way.
Cleaning/bleaching this ball would be an ill-fated decision IMHO.
I hope this helps!
