A baseball signed by Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Ty Cobb failed to meet a $75,000 reserve last week. Now, the owner is putting it back on eBay with a reserve and orders to sell.
The sale of an autographed baseball carrying the signatures of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Ty Cobb is being brokered by a dealer who’s handled high quality vintage sports memorabilia before…much of it from the same collector.
The ball is being sold via eBay by Terry Neils of Coins, Cards and Collectibles in Mankato, MN on behalf of the anonymous collector. He believes the ball is worth at least $55,000, even with two other non-descript signatures also adorning the circa-1930 ball.
The eBay listing was asking for best offers. Only two were made before the bidding first closed last week. Now, they’ve put the ball back up with an unlisted reserve. Thus far, bidding is at $20,000 and change with a few days remaining.
