  • Who signed my baseball?

    Hi all.....new here.

    I've got a signed baseball that was given to me about 20 yrs ago by my grandfather, and I don't know who signed it.

    Anybody here have any ideas?

    Looks like Jim Perry and Gaylord Perry.

      I second that.
      Yankees' payroll: $250 millions
      Marlins' payroll: $50 millions
      Marlins winning The Series: Priceless

        That would be my guess as well.

            Oh yeah, the Perry Brothers for sure on this one. What a gift!

            Garvey, Lopes, Russell, and Cey started 833 times and the Dodgers went 498-335, for a .598 winning percentage. That’s equal to a team going 97-65 over a season. On those occasions when at least one of them missed his start, the Dodgers were 306-267-1, which is a .534 clip. That works out to a team going 87-75. So having all four of them added 10 wins to the Dodgers per year.

              Wow thanks a lot guys! filihok, those picture pretty much solve it!

              I don't follow baseball at all (Moneyball is the sum total of my baseball knowledge), so I'm guessing I don't know the significance of what I have. I've done some Googling....looks like they were famous pitchers?

                are, of course, good sites if you're interested in learning more about them.


                If you're interested in finding out what the balls are worth,

                can give you some ideas.

                I'm sure there's a baseball card shop somewhere near where you live as well
