My buddy has 2 Votto signed baseballs and I am looking to buy one. What is a reasonable price to ask for? I'm not good at judging the value of things lol

Saying he's your friend is kinda hard to judge..Straight up from a shop I'd pay 100 for it. Of course that value is going to go up as he gets even better.

$100 was what I was thinking. I don't want to rip him off...

If he's your friend, he should work with you and vice versa. 100 is very reasonable.

A store at the mall here in Lexington has several of them for $90.

They've also got a ton of Brandon Phillips and Jay Bruce for $75 as well.

Haha dang, if those are worth so much then how much are my Pete Rose, Ken Griffey JR, and Johnny Bench balls worth?

A) Are you sure they are real?
B) What type of pen was used to get the autograph?
C) Is it a authentic ML ball or some other kind of baseball
D) Where is the signature?
E) If the sig is legit, a black or blue ink pen was used, it's a true ML baseball and he signed it on teh sweet spot, top value right now I would list around $50-75.

A) I know for a fact the Johnny Bench one was, I was sitting right next to him in the Diamond seats in 2006.
B) I dont know..
C) All are Major League Baseballs
D) Bottom of the ball/Opposite side of logos.
E) Blue pen on Jr and Rose, Black on Bench's ball. So, the price tag for 3 future Hall of Fame players is under $100? :(

Your bench one if in mint condition might fetch around $75-$80, the Rose one same price range and Jr. maybe near $60. Alot depends on the quality of the autograph, where it is signed, how it was signed and such.

I know we're getting off topic but....

I've got a Mantle ball that I've heard is worth several hundred since he died. I really should look into selling it, but haven't gotten around to it. Plus my dad gave it to me (Mantle was signing at a trade show he was at), and even though he says to do whatever I want with it I'm still not sure how I feel about selling it.

The value isn't probably that high unless you can get it certified.

I have George Grande's autograph on the back of a Jason Larue baseball card. I don't think either him or me realized what he was signing.

Oh, I also have taken to getting hockey autographs on baseballs. The players never know exactly what to think.

How about balls signed by, Scott Scudder, Brook Fordyce, Chris Stynes, and Dave Burba. I wouldn't believe they are worth much but I like them for the fact they decorate my Reds room. The Mantle ball even only worth a few hundred isn't worth getting rid of.

I wouldn't say it's worth much. $30

Probably worth alot because of the rarity, seeing as how George Grande has been asked to sign his autograph only 3 times ever....and a Jason LaRue baseball card has never been autographed to my knowledge, even by Jason LaRue.

I got Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter to each sign a baseball for me 2 years ago, both within 3 days of each other.
