My first thoughts were this was a facsimile ball. After looking at it more though I think there is a chance it is actual signatures. The writing went into the seems on a few signatures. What do you think?

Not a fan of it . Looks like a souvenir ball to me.

Looks preprinted to me, but being able to zoom in on the photos would help. The absolute uniformness of the signatures screams souvenir ball to me though.

I would say it's a facsimile ball.

When pen hit stitching there is no skip on flow of signature.

Souvenir ball for sure.

I thought for a moment Lynaryd Skynard had signed the sweet spot and then remembered;

1) Lynaryd Skynard is not a real person
2) Larry Shepherd

Although the autos are facsimiles, it's still much nicer than most such souvenir balls and is very colorful with the logo. Nice item.
