If this is supposed to ba a Rosrschach test, I see a bear shaking hands with a small pine tree.

A ball that appears as if all the signatures may have come from the same hand.

Hard to tell from that picture, but from that distance it looks like a pre-printed ball that you would get at a stadium.

Good point. Some of the sigs appear to begin in the stitching.

Thanks. The seller didn't believe me when I told him it looked facsimile. Unfortunately, he has a wonderful story about getting this as a kid from an important person, and now I seem to have ruined it for him.

I have had numerous baseballs offered to me with lengthy stories about how the ball was obtained. The balls turned out to be facsimile baseballs and there were times when people actually said that I was wrong and they still insisted that the ball was an actual signed baseball.

If it is a facsimile stadium ball then the ball itself will have no markings on the label area, or in other words it will have (2) blank sweet spots for signatures. You will not find a facsimile ball sold at the stadium on an official League Ball or anything like that because they used cheap blank baseballs.
