Before then, there was no way of knowing if a baseball was used in, or made for the World Series.

Without a strong letter of provenance proving that the baseball was hit for a home run in the 1946 World Series, and by who, it cannot be sold as such. A letter of provenance from a team player or league official would be acceptable to prove it is a World Series home run game baseball. Then it could have higher value. A letter of provenance from a fan at the game will not hold much weight if any. Otherwise the baseball would be valued as a vintage Official baseball in used condition. Provenance is the history of ownership of a particular item. It allows the buyer to secure additional insight as to the origin or chain of custody of the item.
