The appraisal fair continues in Cleveland as Hunt Auctions takes a look at some of the items brought in by fans interested in finding out what their baseball memorabilia is worth.
Some of it isn’t worth much but every once in a while, a gem comes through.
Among the items that showed up on Saturday was a high quality 1948 Cleveland Indians team signed baseball that included team owner Bill Veeck, who signed right above Satchel Paige (who had inked his contract with the Tribe on July 7—the day of his 42nd birthday). Bob Feller signed on the sweet spot. Luckily, none of the signatures were deemed “clubhouse” or “secretarial.”
According to a story on Cleveland.com, the owner said his father was a milkman who had one of the team’s pitchers on his route. The milkman asked for an autographed ball and the pitcher agreed to deliver it.

The appraisal fair leads up to Tuesday’s All-Star Auction.
A baseball card set about…nothing?
On the 30th anniversary of the iconic show’s first episode, the New York Mets held Seinfeld Night last Friday and baseball cards were part of the fun.
The Mets distributed a four card set featuring Jerry and his most famous cast members and gave them away to fans attending the game. They also received a Seinfeld bobblehead and with Jerry on hand to toss out the first pitch, it was a fairly hot ticket.
Some of the cards have made their way to eBay and you can see them here.

The Mariners honored the 50th anniversary (and only) season of the Seattle Pilots last month.
Now, the uniforms they wore that day are up for grabs. That’s right–full uniforms, including those famous hats–are being sold.
MLB Auctions has them up for bid but you’ll have to hurry as bidding ends Monday evening.
