  • Help to ID a signed baseball



    Hello, thanks in advance for any help identifying this signed baseball. Two shots (same ball) at the following Photobucket address:

    Kenneth Singleton?
    Karl Spooner?
    Any more info about the ball, when, where?
    Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

      Hi, not much additional info. It was gifted to me with another ball, signed by Tom Lasorda, by the owner of a B&B I was staying at who wasn't a baseball fan. I watch the Dodgers west coast and BoSox east coast, so had expressed interest and he gave them both to me. They were ea in acrylic ball cases and he said they were left behind by a previous guest, in the last year. Another person suspected Kazuhiro Sasaki.....dunno.

        Actually, that's probably a much better guess than mine

            It's none of the above mentioned players... I'll look through my collection and see if I can match it up. If I had to guess, it was signed fairly recently since the sharpie ink fades and you can see traces of yellow on the edges of the signature after a few years. I'd be willing to bet the ball was signed by a minor leaguer, but I've been wrong before.
            WAR? Prove it!

                No problem- I have over 700 autos and couldn't find anything even close. There aren't many "KS" players out there. For all I know, your ball might be a "KF" or something. Interesting...

                  I was thinking perhaps Kal Daniels, but there would be no reason for the tail on the last name.

                    Yes, maybe KF....also seems like there's a dotted letter in both first and last names. And that the last name might end with "gh". Famous people should take penmenship classes!

                      Was there a player named Karl Spangler??
                      Or am I just losing it??
