The Baseball I believe you are referring to, because it's "still in the Box" is the Mickey Mantle commemorative baseball that was used in an official game played on August 25, 1996. A monument in honor of Mickey Mantle who died a year earlier was unveiled in Yankee Stadium's Monument Park that day. The Major League approved, Official American League Gene Budig baseball featured black stitching, a New York 7 with a Mickey Mantle Facsimile signature in black ink. This signature is not hand signed but stamped on.

In August of 1996 the baseballs were made available to the public, and sold for $10.- $12. Today the Baseballs are commonly found on eBay, and sealed in the box sell for about $15.-$20. If the baseball you have is in fact signed by Mickey Mantle with the inscription "no. 7" then a Mickey Mantle single signed baseball is worth about $400.-$600. Price will vary based on condition, and type of authenticity that accompanies the signature.

Rare examples of pristine signatures or inscriptions like "The Mick" "no. 7" or 536 HR's" could raise the price to the $1,000. price range. Personal inscription like "Good luck Mike" could sell below $400. A rarely signed full name signature "Mickey Charles Mantle" will break the $2,000 price mark as it did in a May 5th 2007 live eBay auction selling for $2,390. A signature that is not authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. The box of the baseball could add some value.

What is the value of a Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays autographed picture?

The value of a multi signed baseball 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. Duke snider short of a Willie, Mickey, and the Duke baseball, this duo should still be desired. Mantle, and Mays defined baseball in the 1950's for two of the three New York teams A Mickey Mantle single signed baseball is worth about $500. -$800., a Willie Mays single signed baseball is worth about $125. -$200. A Mickey Mantle Willie Mays dual signed baseball is worth about $300.-$400. If both signatures can be viewed at the same time when the baseball is displayed it could have a higher value. The value could also be effected if one or the other signature is on the sweet spot. 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. Signatures that have not been properly authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. In a June 20008 auction a Mickey Mantle Willie Mays dual signed baseball sold for $358.50


What is the value of a baseball signed by Mickey Mantle and Cal Ripken Sr?

In a lot of examples a single signed baseball could be worth more than a multi signed baseball. One example that stands out is a David Wells owned Babe Ruth Single signed baseball that he had Barry Bonds sign. David took a lot of criticism in that by having Bonds sign the baseball it was devalued. A Mickey Mantle single signed baseball could be worth between $600.-$800. Adding a less desired Cal Ripken Sr autograph to the baseball will devalue it. First thing A collector looking to buy a Mickey Mantle signature will prefer to have it alone with no other signatures. That collector will pay more for the signature by itself than with another. Multi signed baseballs should have a theme to hold value. MVP players, 300 game winners, 500 HR club etc. Two players signed on one baseball with no relation will most likely fetch less money. For an example of a good combination Cal Ripken Jr. (not Sr.) might be desired by collectors if it were signed on a baseball with Lou Gehrig. Both being the Iron men of baseball. This would be a very unique and rare combination and could fetch big bucks. But there would still be collectors that would prefer Lou Gehrig by itself. A Mickey Mantle single signed baseball will be worth more money than one with Cal Ripken Sr. Value will be determined by how much a collector that is interested in both will pay for it.
