A Babe Ruth single signed Baseball is worth about $6,000.-$10,000. A Willie Mays single signed baseball is worth about $125.-$200.

I have never seen a Babe Ruth Willie Mays duel signed baseball. They would be rare but by adding a Willie Mays signature to a Babe Ruth signed baseball it will lower the value. If a Babe Ruth Willie Mays duel signed baseball were to come up in auction it would most likely sell below $6,000.

Value is based on average prices of recently closed auctions. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the baseball. Signatures that are not properly authenticated could sell at half the market value or less.

The value of "Supposedly" used and signed by Babe Ruth is low if not worthless. The baseball will only have value if "it is" used and signed by Babe Ruth. The only way to remove the "Supposedly" is by having the signature properly authenticated. As far as being "used" only a high level letter of provenance tracing the ball back to the baseball actually being used by the Babe will confirm this. Without strong provenance the ball will always be "Supposedly used" and will have no value as such. There will be no way of proving that the baseball is "game used" or "used by Babe Ruth" so what you have is a Babe Ruth single signed baseball which does have high value. However if the baseball is not properly authenticated you could land up with half the market value or less. The value of a Babe Ruth single signed baseball could be worth anywhere from $4,000. -$10,000. and up Value will vary baseball on the condition of both the baseball and signature, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. The signature should be strong, and bold, as opposed to faded and hard to see.

I take it by "Hall of Fame 1936 Babe Ruth Baseball" you mean a Baseball signed by Babe Ruth when he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1936, or a "Hall of Fame Babe Ruth Baseball" issued recently as a collectible to commemorate Babe Ruth's Hall of Fame induction. Big Difference.If the baseball is a commemorate Babe Ruth's Hall of Fame baseball celebrating his induction into the Hall of Fame it would only be worth about $5.-$15. More of a novelty than a collectible. If the baseball is signed, and dated "1936" by Babe Ruth it will have higher value than a baseball signed by the Babe without the added inscription. Any inscription in reference to the Hall of Fame will add further value.One of the most prized signatures in the hobby a Babe Ruth single signed baseball in general is worth about $6,000.-$10,000.

The most expensive autographed baseball in history was sold at an auction held on May 6, 2006 when a Joe DiMaggio Marilyn Monroe duel signed baseball sold for $191,200.

A Babe Ruth single signed baseball, the finest known Ruth-signed ball, graded 9.5 out of 10 by Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA) sold for $150,000 in 2005. Babe Ruth single signed baseballs in general sell for about $4,000.-$10,000. so this price is well above the market value.


A signature with the quotation marks around "Babe" typifies his pre-1928 autograph and will sell at a higher value. Babe Ruth passed away in 1948 but the other signatures could have been added years later. Most autographs in Ruth's day was signed with a fountain pen. If any of the signatures were signed with a ballpoint pen or Sharpie for example it would date the signature to a later date. Sharpie did not appear until the 1970's. It might be impossible to determine the year the baseball was signed, and might not effect the value either way. A Babe Ruth signature is one of the most prized signatures in the hobby.

Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the baseball. Signatures that have not been properly authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. Muti-signed baseballs that were passed around during the signing will sometimes have two signatures of the same player. I have never seen a baseball selling at a higher value because of this but then again I have never come across a baseball with two signatures of a player of Babe Ruth's stature. A team signed or multi signed baseball with two Babe Ruth signatures might sell at a higher price as a novelty. A baseball with two Babe Ruth signatures on the same baseball with no other signatures will sell at a significant higher price if both signatures could be viewed together when displayed. Otherwise the baseball will sell for more, but not twice the value. The baseball would have to be of the attention of collectors that find the duel signed Babe Ruth baseball intriguing, and have the money to spend on the novelty. The baseball might also be valued or compatible in price as a Babe Ruth signed, and inscribed baseball. Condition of the signatures will still be a factor, with each signature being graded on it's own merrit.


Babe Ruth Signed Exhibit Baseball CardThe Exhibit baseball cards came with a facsimile signature of the player. In general a Babe Ruth Exhibit card from 1926-1928 era is worth about $1,200. - $$3,000.00 in Near Mint condition (unsigned) If the card has an added hand signed signature of Babe Ruth, it will have added value but the card will have little effect on the value of the signature. Signed baseball cards typically sell at a bout 30-40 percent the price of a signed baseball or the price of a signed 8 x 10 photo. The price could also vary based on the popularity of the player, and how sought after the signature is. A high valued card can add some value but not come close to it's un-signed value.I have not found any closed auction with a signed baseball card but being compatible in value with a photo the value should be in the $3,000.-$4,000. price range in general. value may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature, and how well the Exhibit baseball card displays the signature.

Ruth DiMaggio Williams Multi Signed BaseballIt is difficult to put a value on a multi signed baseball. The value of the signatures cannot be added up to come up with a total. Multi-signed baseballs are valued as a whole, and how desired the signatures are as a group. This does not necessarily mean that two signatures will sell for less than one, but in most cases it does, or at least not the full value of the two signatures added up. The key signature of the three would be Babe Ruth. One of the most prized signatures in the hobby a Babe Ruth single signed baseball in general is worth about $6,000.-$10,000.

Value will vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature.The Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio signatures have a value of about $400.-$800. each. The three signatures together would most likely sell below the value of a single signed Babe Ruth baseball.The number of collectors in the market looking to spend a large amount of money on a Babe Ruth signature alone would be higher than the number of collectors that would desire the multi signed baseball. The multi signed baseball would sell at a discount. If the Babe Ruth signature is an exceptional, pristine signature it would have the potential to sell at a higher value.
