    What would U guys do if U owned these awesome pieces? These have been in my family for years now and they are not authenticated by any main sports authenticator. I want to get them checked out but really don't want to send them off fear of getting lost or stolen. Here are the pics What Would U Do?? Sports Autos - a9a9unas.jpg What Would U Do??

    I'd definitely get them appraised/authenticated. If for no other reason but insurance purposes.

    Who is the bat signed by...it looks like Ruth's signature.

    Jesus man...and you don't have that in a protective case? Something needs to be done to preserver that sig before it degrades even further.

    Haha alright, I saw the ball in a cube so I had horrible thoughts.

    I am not a sports collector by any stretch, but that bat is a piece of history. You need to get both items appraised. I am sure there are some reputable PSA's relatively close to you.

    I know we have talked in the past. I had no idea you had a Ruth signed bat.

    This may sound crazy but if you are not going to sell it put it in the Baseball HOF. Serious!!
    If you would sell it, take it to a sports auction house. They would make sure it is real and put it up for auction. They take a % but you would get serious bidders.
    No place else (Ebay, etc.) would think it is real.
    Now the Baseball HOF. Your name would be immortalized forever as the donator of the bat to the hall. There would be a small plaque with your name on it.
    Plus they have the cases that are the correct temp/light/moisture control that would save that bat and sig.

    Just a thought. There are not many of those around!!

    Good luck
