Default Autograph Authentication - Wills, Edmonds, Musial, Piazza, Snider, Ripken Jr, Rose...


I've posted a couple of times already requesting feedback on some signed baseballs. Thank you to all of those who have helped me out thus far. This should be my last request (at least for a while) for help with determining the authenticity of autographed baseballs.

Names are as follows: Maury Wills, Jim Edmonds, Steve Garvey, Mike Piazza, Duke Snider, Cal Ripken Jr., Pete Rose (faded signature), Nolan Ryan, Stan Musial, and Yogi Berra.

I am least worried about the Yogi Berra because it has the MLB AR147650 hologram sticker, indicating it was signed on Dec 01, 2001, at a Yogi Berra private signing event. Nevertheless, I would still appreciate any opinions on this autograph. I am most worried about the Nolan Ryan and Stan Musial, simply because I gifted these to friends a few weeks back, so I want to make sure they're the real deal. Otherwise, I'll give him each an authentic one in place. Originally, I believed all of my autographed baseballs were authentic, but I have since learned that some are certainly authentic but others are not.

Thanks in advance to anyone able to provide opinions/help.

FWIW, I believe that mostly all of these balls are likely good, but I will not specifically comment on Piazza and Stan Musial.
Piazza I have no experience with and the Musial is maybe a later in life example.
Every ball other than these two I can say with confidence look to be 100% genuine.

All good but Piazza, but like most others here I don't know enough about, so it could be good but even that certainly doesn't look way off to ones I've seen of his.
