  • 1955 Seattle Rainiers team autographed baseball

    I have a team autographed baseball from the 1955 Seattle Rainiers. It was given to me by my late uncle Ewell Blackwell. I was wondering if anyone knew how to go about finding out how much the ball is worth. Ball is in good condition.

    Thank you for your time.

        I can't seem to find a team roster from that season, and none of the names on the ball jump out at me. My guess would be that it could be valued anywhere from $125 to $200. If you can identify any of the actual player names it could easily increase.

          I found this on Ebay which list the players on this ball. Thats how I determined that it was from this team.

            Pretty clean Fred Hutchinson sig... I don't see Ewell Blackwell or John Oldham (maybe I'm not looking too closely).

            EDIT: Nevermind - I see a nice Blackwell sig on there. I'd still say this ball would go in the $125/$150 range.

                Looks like Larry Jansen is on the ball, too- He pitched there in '55 and '56 before trying to make a comeback with the Reds.

                  Bobby Balcena is interesting...he was the first Filipino-American to play Major League Baseball.

                      I have a ball from around this time period with some of the same sigs. I know that I have bob schallock, bud podbielan, dick aylward, howie judson, jim dyck, bill brenner, milt smith, vern stephens, ray orteig, bill kennedy, artie wilson, art schult, bill glynn, bobby balcena, pat scantlebury, joe taylor, don fracchia, and harvey zernia. How much would anyone guess mine would be worth?

                        Hi Shawn,

                        I'd be happy to talk to you about the baseball and also wondered if you had any other Seattle Rainiers items. I can be reached at [email protected] Thanks!
