    Looking to buy a autograph baseball.....but who?

    Looking to buy one of these guys autographed baseball.....who would you get?

    Mickey Mantle

    Joe DiMaggio

    Ted Williams

    looking to get each one as long as my budget will allow, so, wondering which you would get first.....or, someone else. Budget is around $500.

    I'd go for the ted because he's more interesting than the other two.

    Teddy. Best player in that group.

    All 3 are forged quite a bit. Make sure you get one certified by a big company (UDA, PSA, JSA). It's not fool proof, but it'll save you lots of aggravation.

    I'd be pretty happy with any of the 3. Like goob said, get one from a reputable grading.

    Of those guys probably Mantle, although the number of auto fakes he has might be higher than any other player... so watch out.


    Since we are in the 2nd-5th best all time "almost Babe Ruth tier" of player, I'd throw Lou Gehrig into the mix and pick him.

    If you know where to find an authentic Lou Gehrig autographed ball that's within the OP's $500 budget, please tell us.

    A legit Dimaggio and Williams will be in the 300-350 range for a clean one , maybe a lil more of its got jersey # inscription or anything. Mantle will be more $400 ish. If you hold out, do research and by non-authenticated you prob would save $250-300 on all 3, but then you'll pay that much in Authentication fees if you wanted them done at some point.

    QFT

    I'm also in the "anyone of those three" camp. I find all three of them interesting in their own way and would love to own an auto'd ball from any one of them.

    My advice- search and search for all three and don't pull the trigger till you find a beauty with great eye appeal. These aren't needles in a haystack, sift through till you find one that pops. And also- like everyone else already said buy an authenticated ball
