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.

This would be a considered a "hodge podge" ball by collectors, meaning there is no apparent theme or team documented by the signatures. Still a nice ball with the inclusion on Mays and Mantle. The authenticity of their signatures is the key appraisal factor. Assume the ball is worth $150-200 if their autographs are deemed genuine.
