Default Passed on these willie mays balls today. Opinions Needed

Friend of mine owns a pawn shop. They had a bunch of sports stuff I was offering on. I left these willie mays autos out cause they didnt look right to me. I am not that great on Mays sig as I have only had a handful of genuine examples let me know what you think

the one on the right looks just like mine, and Jim Stinson said it was ok. I have seen the left signature pretty often. I think they are 10-15 years apart, but both authentic.

Who is the commish on the balls?

I believe it was William White on both of them. His signature is tough for me. Darn. I hate to pass on good stuff.

yeah they do look very similar. I mean I try to err on the side of caution. I just did not think the two balls looked like they were penned in the same hand.

Thanks for your help on this.

I would have to disagree on the quick opinion...neither ball is at a really good angle to tell on the signatures. Do you have any better pics?

Both look perfectly good to me. I would not hesitate on either.

I think they are both very nice. I would have no problem buying them if I was in the market for a Mays ball.

Thanks for all the opinions on these. I pulled the trigger on these today with some more items.

I will provide some better photos soon too just for reference point.
