    Alright Vintage Autograph Experts — check out this ball

    Ball is an early-mid 50s Spalding baseball. I’m assuming the signatures are from that era. I think I spot a Duke Snider, and Casey Stengel.

    Can anyone identify any of the other ones?

    That right there is a 1963 Mets team ball, the inclusion of Ernie White pins down the year, as that was his only year as pitching coach on Casey Stengels staff

    Thank you all for the help. Anyone have an idea of what a fair price for it would be?

    Stengel and Snider are the key autographs, unless some of the others didn't sign often. As is, $50-100 and if authenticated, probably 3 times that, is my guess.

    Cool '63 Mets ball.
    It's missing a key autograph, Gil Hodges.

    As for price, a '63 Mets ball including Stengel and Hodges, authenticated by Beckett, recently sold for $450 on eBay:

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Gil-Hodges-...app-cvip-panel

    So yours incomplete without Hodges and not authenticated is probably worth around $100 or $150 because of Stengel.
