Depending on the signatures. In most cases a single signed Baseball of a "Noted Player" will be worth more than a multi signed baseball that features the same "Noted player".

Using Mickey Mantle as an example of a "Noted Player" vs. an actual Multi signed baseball that sold at auction, and included Mickey Mantle's signature on it.

A Mickey Mantle single signed baseball is worth between $400.-$800.

In two separate auctions a Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle, and Duke Snider Multi-Signed Baseball. (NY center Fielders) very desired Willie Mickey and the Duke baseball sold for $334. and $448.

Value is based on the price collectors pay for an Item. There are more collectors of Mickey Mantle memorabilia, and his signature is more sought after than the other two HOF'ers on this baseball. You have to treat this as two separate items. A Mickey Mantle single signed baseball, and a Mickey Mantle Multi signed baseball. There are less collectors of Hall of Fame multi signed signatures, than collectors of a Mickey Mantle signature. Therefor a Mickey Mantle Signed baseball will sell at a higher price.

A collector of a Mickey Mantle signed baseball might prefer the signature by itself, may not desire the other signatures, and will not pay extra for the others or just pay less for the less desired baseball getting the Mickey Mantle signature at a bargain. This is why you cannot add up the value of each signature to come up with a value.

To be a little extreme a David Ortiz single signed baseball might sell in the area of $300.-$400. most of the collectors of this baseball would be a David Ortiz Fan or, and a Boston Red Sox fan. Add a New York Yankees Bucky Dent signature to it. You just removed 99% of the Boston Red Sox collectors from the list of potential buyers. A collector looking for a Bucky Dent signature will not pay extra for the Ortiz signature. The amount of collectors that would desire this baseball has been significantly reduced bringing the price down with it.

In some cases you might get more for a pair of signatures than the price of one, but not the total value of the two. I hope this helped you out. It could get confusing. If you have any question get back to me. I will leave a link from my website below. "How much is my autographed baseball?"

Why the difference is price for signed vs autographed sports memorabilia?

Signed autographThere is no difference between signed memorabilia and autographed memorabilia. It is just deference in terminology. A signed baseball is the same as an autographed baseball and the same value. An autograph is signed. You could sign a check or a document but the signature would not be considered an autograph. You sign a baseball or a photo and the signature is an autograph.


How much is a baseball signed by Derek Holland and by Josh Hamilton worth?

nothing....now if it was just signed by holland or just by hamilton its def. worth something....but a lot of times when baseballs are signed by multiple players it makes it less valuable


Difference between a signed baseball or autographed baseball?

A signed baseball, and an autographed baseball is basically the same thing just a different use of terminology. Autograph is more commonly used referring to when a celebrity signs an item but it means the same as sign or signature. Just as you might call a car an automobile. It's the same thing.


How do you establish the year a baseball was signed with just 6 signatures that are Roy Hartzell Dizzy Dean Mel Ott Bill Terry Babe Ruth and Gabby Hartnett?

A signature with the quotation marks around "Babe" typifies his pre-1928 autograph and will sell at a higher value. Babe Ruth passed away in 1948 but the other signatures could have been added years later. Most autographs in Ruth's day was signed with a fountain pen. If any of the signatures were signed with a ballpoint pen or Sharpie for example it would date the signature to a later date. Sharpie did not appear until the 1970's. It might be impossible to determine the year the baseball was signed, and might not effect the value either way. A Babe Ruth signature is one of the most prized signatures in the hobby. A Babe Ruth single signed baseball in general is worth about $6,000.-$10,000. Value may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. If the signature is not properly authenticated it could sell at half the market value or less. A Babe Ruth (Key signature) Multi signed baseball could sell for less than a Babe Ruth single signed baseball. Multi signed baseballs often do. The other names you mentioned as gabby Hartnett are not to shabby but the additional signatures as a whole would have to be more desired than a baseball signed by Babe Ruth alone. It would most likely sell below the value of a Babe Ruth single signed baseball. The Dizzy Dean signature could recapture the value


What is the value on a 1973 Cleveland Indian baseball with six signatures?

With just six signatures this baseball would not concidered to be a team signed baseball but, you might be able to use the value to estimate the value of your baseball. It would come down to which six players signed the baseball, and having the signature of Perry is important. A 1973 Cleveland Indians Team Signed Baseball with the key signature: Perry is worth about $90.-$120. Value is based on average prices of recently closed auctions. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the baseball. Prices may also vary based on the amount of signatures, and key signatures acquired. The more complete the baseball with key signatures the more valuable. If the signatures are not properly authenticated the baseball could sell at half the market value or less. For more information on team signed baseballs, links to full team rosters, key signatures, and price guide see Related Links below.


Your friend has a signed painting or print of the collector by Norman Rockwell is it valuable or just a print with a signature on it?

First thing that MUST be determined is whether the "signature" is actually a signature or is a printed signature. To test for printed or real, tilt the print toward a light bulb and using a magnifying glass look for the pixels to either have dots in the signature or see if there is a layer of blue or blank ink laying on top of the image pixels. If it is signed, then you need to check for authenticity. The best way is to find someone of known honesty who is selling something signed by the artist and compare your signature with the one known to be real. A real Norman Rockwell signature on a print would be worth $300-500 USD. A real Norman Rockwell signature on a authentic painting would be determined by the current auction rate for a similar painting by him of the same size.


How much is a signed baseball of Mickey Mantle worth if he only signed Mickey?

Mikey SignatureThis would be difficult to put a value on as there are no auctions or a history of sales to base it on. I don't think there would be a large demand for it and it might be more of a novelty to a Mantle collector. If the "Mickey" Signature was properly authenticated as being signed by Mickey Mantle I would think it might fetch about half the value of a full signature or more if there is interest. A full Mickey Mantle signature on a baseball is worth about $600.-$800. If it were signed just "The Mick" it might have a higher value.


How do you make custom index cards for sports autographs?

You could just go out and buy index cards. If you want them customized, do it to your liking. Index cards are good for TTM Autographs which means sending away for signatures Through The Mail but, signatures signed on an index card will be lower in value than a signed baseball or Photo. If you are getting the autograph in person you should get either a photo or baseball signed. Signatures will vary in price based on condition, the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature, the item signed, and how well the item displays the signature. Baseballs are the most common, and preferred by collectors because of it's connection to the game, low cost, availability and it displays the signature well. The signed baseball represents the average price for a signature, and by deducting or adding from this price for the Item signed accordingly will give you a good idea on value.The lowest priced signed item would be for a "cut Signature." A cut signature is a signature on a piece of paper, or "cut" from a larger piece. Index cards are the next step up, and both sell at a fraction (about 10%-20%) the price of an autographed baseball. Autograph photos typically sell at about 40-60 percent the price of a baseball with bats, uniform Jersey's and equipment selling at a higher price due to the higher cost of the item, rarity and display.In general if an autographed baseball is worth $100. the same autograph on a 8x10 photo $50. a cut signature or index card$20. on a bat $150. The percentage of the price could also vary based on the popularity of the player, and how sought after the signature is.


What is the value of a baseball autographed by Mickey Mantle Early Wynn Lefty Gomez Bob Feller Billy Herman and Ernie Banks?

In some cases a single signed baseball of a noted player is worth more than a multi signed baseball with the same player of note. In this case the Mickey Mantle signature would be the most valuable, and the key signature with the other Hall of Fame players on this baseball. I would categorize this baseball as a "Mickey Mantle Multi signed Hall of Fame baseball" And this would be part of the explanation of why a Mickey Mantle single signed baseball would be more valuable than a Multi signed HOF baseball. Value is based on the price collectors pay for an Item. There are more collectors of Mickey Mantle memorabilia, and his signature is more sought after than the other HOF'ers on this baseball. You have to treat this as two separate items. A Mickey Mantle single signed baseball, and a Multi signed baseball. There are less collectors of Hall of Fame multi signed signatures, than collectors of a Mickey Mantle signature. Therefor a Mickey Mantle Signed baseball will sell at a higher price. A collector of a Mickey Mantle signed baseball might prefer the signature by itself, may not desire the other signatures, and will not pay extra for the others or just pay less for the less desired baseball. This is why you cannot add up the value of each signature to come up with a value. A single signed Mickey Mantle Baseball is worth about $400..-$800. I checked an auction house for Mickey Mantle Multi signed baseballs and found 5 baseballs that sold between $131. - $896 averaging around $350. Of cause the signatures that appear on each baseball are different, and will effect the value, as well as the type of authenticity that accompanies the signatures, and condition. Which signature that appears on the "sweet spot" will also effect the value. The baseball that sold for $896. was in great condition, strong signatures, PSA/DNA authenticated, and had the following signatures: Mantle, Herman, Spahn, Koufax, Sewell, Musial, Killebrew, Palmer, Berra, Banks, Marichal, Mays, Lemon, Aparicio, Ford, Aaron and Frank Robinson. With three signatures in common with your baseball with some similar signatures, but more. Two Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle and Duke Snider Multi-Signed Baseballs. (NY center Fielders) very desired Willie Mickey and the Duke baseball sold for $334. and $448. This baseball with only three signature might be more desired than the baseball you have. A Mickey Mantle, Wally Post, Ted Kluszewski, and Gus Bell, very sloppy condition sold for sold for $167 Your baseball should do much better that this, and based on the information from these auction I would say that your baseball if properly authenticated in excellent+ condition should be worth at least $350.-$500. signatures that are not authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. If the signatures are not authenticated, and if you do not no the origin of the baseball, be sure that the signatures are hand signed, and not facsimile (stamped) signatures. For more info on facsimile signatures, and autographed baseballs read my newsletter "How Much is my autographed baseball" I will leave a couple of links below.


How much would a signature of Amelia Earhart be worth if it was just before she died?

It depends where she signed. If she signed a book, or a flight plan, then it might be worth much more, but from what I know a signature on a normal peice of paper could be worth as much as $1,899.00.


Value of Limited Edition roger maris signed baseball?

A Roger Maris single signed baseball is worth about $2,000.-$5,000. Value is based on average prices of recently closed auctions. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Signatures that have not been properly authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. Add for inscriptions. Limited Edition is just a ploy to sell baseballs. It would only mean something if they were the only Roger Maris signed baseballs in existence. Because you mention the baseballs are Limited edition I have to question if your baseball is hand signed. You might have a limited edition stamped signature baseball. If this is the case it would be worth about $30. -$50. In a recent auction a Roger Maris single signed baseball sold at a high of $5,975.00.


What is the value of a 8 by 10 inch photo of Carl Yastrzemski with autograph 3 by 5 inch card and certificate of authenticity?

The 8x10 photo of Carl Yastrzemski is most likely just for display purposes, and if it was signed it would be worth about $75. -$150. The collectible is the signature, and from what I understand from your question you have a signed 3"x 5" card or index card. A signature on an index card has a lower value than a signed baseball or photo. They typically sell for about 20 percent the value of a signed baseball, and the percentage of the value will vary based on the popularity of the ballplayer and how sought after the signature is.A Carl Yastrzemski signed index card would be worth about $30. $40.The value will vary based on the condition of the signature, and the type of authenticity that you have. Signatures that have not been properly authenticated could sell at half the market value or less.


Where can you enter the number on the silver sticker of a baseball to find out who signed it?

Signature verification numberThe hologram or sticker on the baseball should have the name of the company that authenticated the signature. For example above the number it might read PSA/DNA. Visit the PSA/DNA website and click on the "Cert verification" link. It will tale you to a page to enter the number, and verify. You will then be taken to a page with the details about the autograph.The same goes for which ever company authenticated the baseball. Just visit their website, and look for the information to verify the signature.


Baseball signed by many old players how do you find the worth?

Old Players Multi Signed BaseballThe baseball you have is a multi signed baseball, and could be a team signed baseball as well. You need to list the names that appears on the ball, and figure out if the signatures are from a team, or just Random signatures. If it is team signed you then have to figure what year the baseball is from.The value of multi signed baseballs cannot be priced by the value of each signature added up. Multi signed baseballs are valued as a group of signatures, and how desired that group is as a whole. This does not necessarily mean that two signatures will sell for less than one, but in most cases it does, or at least not the full value of the two signatures added up.Once you figure out what you have you could find the value using a price guide, or find closed auctions on line that are compatible to your ball.


What is the value of a 1992 Pacific Nolan Ryan 1 of 6 limited edition personal autographed baseball card?

A Nolan Ryan autographed baseball card is worth between $75.-$120. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Signatures that have not been authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. The limited edition 1 of 6 would only make it more valuable if there were only 6 Nolan Ryan cards in existences. This limited edition is just a ploy to sell memorabilia. Collectible items could add value to the price of a signature but not always. As in the case of a baseball card, generally collectors of baseball cards would rather have a baseball card without the signature. The signature would be considered as a flaw in the condition of the card and will lower the value. A collector of signatures will not always pay extra for the "collectible" baseball card. The autograph collectors main concern is displaying the signature. This is why it is not a good idea to have an expensive baseball card signed. You could devalue the price of the card, and get less for it.

Walter Johnson signed baseball from World Series 1924?

A Walter Johnson single signed baseball is worth about $4,000.-$8,000.Value is based on average prices of recently closed auctions. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Signatures that have not been properly authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. Add for inscriptions. If the baseball was used in the 1924 World Series it could lower the value based on condition. A clean white baseball would be most preferred for the signature.

In a recent auction a Walter Johnson single signed baseball sold for $3,585.00

What is the value of a 1928 autographed Babe Ruth Baseball card?

A Babe Ruth baseball Card, and a Signed Babe Ruth baseball Card are two different items.A 1914 Babe Ruth Rookie baseball card - just the tenth card of its kind to be discovered - which sold at auction in April. for about $270,000. The card was produced by the Baltimore Sun Newspaper. The second most valuable baseball card behind only the 1909 M206 Honus Wagner tobacco card (which recently sold at auction for $2.35 million).I'm not sure what 1928 Baseball card you are asking about but once the card is signed it loses it's value as a collectible baseball card. It now becomes a "signed item" to display the signature. The signature would be considered as a flaw in the condition of the card and the bulk of the value will rely on the signature. The card collector will not spend the money on the card. It will be appealing to the autograph collector but the autograph collector will not spend the extra money on the Collectible card.Signed baseball cards typically sell at a bout 30-40 percent the price of a signed baseball or the price of a signed 8 x 10 photo. The price could also vary based on the popularity of the player, and how sought after the signature is. A high valued card can add some value but not come close to it's un-signed value.I have not found any closed auction with a signed baseball card but being compatible in value with a photo the value should be in the $3,000.-$4,000. price range in general with added value for the card. value may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature, and how well the baseball card displays the signature.

How much is a signed John Ellis baseball card worth?

Because of this I would estimate the value of a signed John Ellis baseball card at about $5.-$10. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Signatures that have not been properly authenticated could sell at half the market value or less.


Baseball that dont know anything about it belonged to your grandfather the ball has a date of 1937it has a signature of ford c frick under the official national league stamp it also has 24 autographs?

The baseball you have is an Official National League baseball with the stamped signature of the league president Ford Frick. The date 1937 could be a clue to the 24 signatures on the baseball. The signatures could be a 1937 team signed baseball, and you would have to match the names to a team to figure out the value. If not the signatures could have also been signed at an All -Star game, at the a Hall Of Fame induction ceremony, or just random players at the ballpark. Visit the Team Signed Baseball Price Guide located below (Related Links). The price guide features links to full team rosters to help you figure out what team the players are from if the baseball is in fact a team signed baseball. Check the names on the teams from 1937 starting with teams that play in the city your grandfather is from, or visited. Then move on to near by cities. If The signatures are random players you would have to figure out the key signatures that would have the most value. The team signed baseball price guide also lists key signatures and you might find it helpful.
