    Signed Ball Autograph Help!!

    It's a softball I got in a box full of baseball items. The only indicator on it is a child's handwriting that says " BRAVES 3/<something>/1998"
    Opening day for them was the 31st, but it definitely doesn't say "31".

    It could be a preseason game, and it could be their opponents. You will awarded 1 hearty "Thanks!" for any help.

    I may have a few more to ask about, too.

    The only one I have identified in the box, so far, is a 1998 Braves partial team ball with:

    Andruw Jones
    Keith Lockhart
    Javy Lopez
    Rudy Seanez
    Walt Weiss (badly faded)
    John Smoltz (niiicccee)

    Doesn't seem right, sorry I couldn't be of more help

    Next up is a baseball labeled (in a child's handwriting) "Cardinels (sic) 3/27/98"

    Looking for the bottom two on the first panel (Sweet spot is Tony LaRussa!!!)
    Second pic, I am looking for the lowest sig (Below Mark DeJohn - the bullpen coach)
    Third Pic, I am looking for the top sig (above Carney Lansford)

    Also in the box were 3 St. Lucie Mets signed balls from the 96-97 time frame with no real notables.

    def. alan benes i have several of his autos

    he was injured and did not play in 98 and was out most of 99, could be why you cant find him on roster sheets.
