Before you sell the Baseball you should get it authenticated. A signature that is not authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. There are too many fakes around for a collector to pay top dollar without it. I gave this advise to someone, and he didn't get the signature authenticated. He then wrote me to find out why he only got $45. for a Mickey Mantle signed baseball card when he sold it on eBay. Two of the top, and most trusted authenticators are PSA/DNA, and James Spence Authentic (JSA). Collectors will pay more for signatures authenticated by either one. It may sound odd but in some cases PSA/DNA, and JSA authenticated signatures may sell higher than a Letter of authenticity from an unknown or less trusted authenticator that witnessed the signing even though PSA/DNA, and JSA did not. It's just a matter of collectors trust, and collectors will pay more for it. Check the respective websites Show Schedule to see if they will be in the area that you live. They also do business through the mail. I will leave a link below. For more information I will also leave a link to my newsletter"How Much Is My Autographed Baseball?"

How do you authenticate coins?

The surest way to authenticate a coin is by submitting it to an authentication and grading service. They will authenticate your coin, assign a condition grade to it, then encapsulate it in a sealed container. Other that that you can do this yourself by comparing the coins features with a similar coin that is established as authentic. Coin authentication has become important since the coin collecting community has been flooded with high quality fakes from China. The quality of the fakes is so good that the only way to be sure of the authenticity is to have the coin professionally authenticated. The presence of these fakes also makes it necessary to know who you are buying from, on-line auctions or mail order are very risky and offer no fraud protection, I would recommend avoiding them.
