Sorry for the terrible scans, but its what was provided. Ball was signed by the following:
Isiah Thomas
joe dumars
Sidney green
Adrian dantley
vinnie Johnson
Dennis rodman
John Daley
bill laimbeer

plus some more he "can't read"

at the price it's being offered to me for, I'm thinking of just taking a chance regardless, but heres some scans if anyone can give me opinions that'd be great

Thanks for the opinions gents!
i was burned on a shitty auto basketball like this. had a hole in it. looks like this one does too
Sorry, I can't help you on the autos, but I personally would bever buy a signed RUBBER ball no matter who signed it, especially if it has a hole in it.

Also I would only be willing to pay so much for any ball leather or rubber unless it was certified authentic by PSA, JSA or some other reputable authenticator.

I mean if you can get it for $20, take a risk. But if your looking at $100+ I would pass.

I'm thinking I can get it for like 5 lol so I think it's worth the risk. If it does have a hole, I'm thinking of just taking an exacto knife to it, cutting out the sigs, and matting them with a photo
Not a bad idea. $5?

I had to bargain my dude down to $38 shipped on a Jarrett Jack auto ball.

My worst sports related purchase ever.

ouch lol thats...painful lol

If it makes you feel better I dropped 300ish when I was 14 years old on a 1988 Game used autographed All-MLB Team baseball (Maddux, Palmiero, all those guys)...still have it...and you an hardly read it anymore (all signed in black ballpoint Sad )
Not really. Maddux is at least a respectable player.

I'm speaking more to the fact that the signatures are all but gone now lol theres like 3-4 future hofs on the ball...well...were on the ball lol
well im assuming you got the item you wanted in the case.

in my case the listing said NBA ball and it looked authentic from the angle of the photo, but ended up being a like a $3 basketball with a hole in it.

even the COA looked fake, but doubt the dude would fake a Jarrett Jack auto.

I'd say the Rodman looks questionable to say the least. Don't have any experience with the others
