The first time I ever saw and held the ball I knew it would be worth a good bit of $$. One relative actually tried to simply walk out the door with it...

One can only wonder what the value might have been had no other signatures been added after the original was in 1909 or thereabouts. More than likely, close to $200,000. or so....

Perhaps the coolest thing for me is that I actually held a baseball that had been also held by Christy Mathewson and Babe Ruth, the only baseball ever they both actually touched & signed....
