Autographed Baseball Grading


autographed baseball grading

Graded autographed baseballs are a popular category for serious baseball collectors. How is a graded baseball different from a graded collectible?

Simply put, in addition to the autograph being graded, the condition of the baseball itself is also graded.


EXAMINATION OF THE AUTOGRAPH

First the autograph on the baseball is examined for authenticity and then issued a grade from 1 to 10 based upon the quality of the signature.

EXAMINATION OF THE BASEBALL

The ball is then examined and an overall grade for the ball (excluding the autograph) is issued from 1 to 10 based upon the quality of the baseball.

OVERALL GRADE

A third grade is assigned and is based upon the average of the grade, the autograph and the grade of the baseball.

As shown above, your autographed baseball will be issued three separate grades. A Certificate or Letter of Authenticity, which includes the unique serial number as well as the grade information, is issued with all autographed baseballs authenticated and graded.
