The author, Ernest Lawrence Thayer, claimed not to have had a particular player in mind when he wrote "Casey at the Bat." But, some people think that 1880s Boston Red Sox play…er Mike Kelly was the model for the character. Two small towns have both claimed to be the model for the town of Mudville: Holliston, Massachusetts, and Stockton, California. There's additional evidence to support the "Stockton, CA" theory as well, as reported in a well-researched article by the Stockton Record some years ago. Like nearly all small towns in America at the time, Stockton in the late 19th-century fielded a semi-professional baseball team and participated in league play with other local communities. If one digs back through the historical record and researches the team rosters from these towns, many of the names used by Thayer in his iconic poem begin to appear in real life as well. Some of these have been shortened, most likely to maintain the poem's cadence, but their resemblance to real-life baseball players from the time period and region is unmistakable. In fact, after a thorough search, the only name that doesn't appear to have a basis in reality is that of Casey himself. Apparently Thayer thought it would be in poor taste to base his goat on a living person. (MORE)
Answer Unique items such as this ball often defy appraising through conventional sources and guides, and the process is far more subjective. Of particular note though, …would be the all-important overall condition of the ball and autographs, as well as the placement of the signatures. The most important autograph is that of Ruth's, and ironically (at least in terms of logic applied by non-collectors), the signatures of Stengel and DiMaggio actually reduce value versus add, meaning a ball featuring only the signature of Babe Ruth would be more valuable than a similar ball offering multiple signatures. Other key factors include type of ball (is it an "Official American League" ball?), whether there are any "clubhouse signatures" (autographs signed for the ballplayers by ballboys, clubhouse attendants, etc). In instances of unique items such as this, the provenance; where, how and when the ball was obtained, may also impact value a lot. But authenticity and condition are the key factors with regard to value. If genuine and in presentable condition, your ball would fetch between $1500-3500, depending on the aforementioned variables.

I am a long time collector of baseball memorabilia, and it has become more than a hobby but an obsession. I owned, and operated a Baseball Card hobby shop in the 1980's through the 1990's. Afterwards I started selling on eBay but not for profit but to support my enormous memorabilia habit.
