According to Leila Dunbar of Leila Dunbar Appraisals and Consulting, a very expensive Mickey Mantle autograph was appraised in 2008. That year, the ball, signed by Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth and Roger Maris, was worth $30,000 to $50,000. The key to this item’s value was the condition of the signatures of all three players. Additionally, this is the only ball known to be signed by all three players.
