The highest-graded Mickey Mantle ball currently for sale on eBay is an unauthenticated ball that sold for $10,000 in 2013. In addition, there are two other signed but ungraded balls from this legendary player. One of these has been certified by PSA/DNA as being worth $15,000 to $20,000 and the other has not been graded but appears to be in good condition with no apparent defects. This makes three signed but ungraded Mickey Mantle balls available for purchase. There are also several other signed but grade C balls by other players available for purchase.

Even though he played only five seasons and was never considered one of the best hitters in baseball, his signature remains valuable.
There are several factors that go into determining the market value for a signed baseball. The year that it was signed, the location where it was signed (i.e., public vs. private collection), and the number of signatures on the ball will all affect its price.
