Default Multi signed Hall of Fame Balls

I have several multi signed Hall of Fame baseballs. My question is if I ever get ready to sell one would I need to have it authenticated or would the buyers be able to tell for themselves if the signatures were real. Zach Wheat had these balls signed. These pictures aren't very good as they were taken with my cel phone. These are all on the same ball. Thanks.

It would cost you about $150 or so for a PSA cert on that ball, I think. Depending on what you think the ball is worth I think it's generally got a good idea to spend more than 10% of the value on authentication, and even at that I think is too high.

Should you go to sell, I think some auction houses have retainer agreements with PSA or JSA and they should cert for a discounted cost or no cost at all, check around or maybe one of the guys who runs an auction house can chime in on that subject.

A great group of signatures and anyone who collects HOF autographs knows they are all good.

First of all, those are some awesome baseballs!

A well informed buyer would be able to tell if they are real, yes. Im certainly no expert but they all look good to me. However, some people feel more comfortable having the ball(s) authenticated for their own piece of mind. BUT, the authentication companies, at times, make mistakes. It's up to you. In my opinion....I don't see a need to have them authenticated. Again, a well informed buyer should know if what he/she is purchasing is real or not.

Hey Kenny,
Sell them here and you won't have to deal with those pesky authenticators!

Kenny: If you are looking to sell your HOF multi-signed balls, I'm sure there are many on here (including myself) who might be interested, if the price is right.
