Posted By: <b>Jodi Birkholm</b><p>My guess is that it's at least partially a 1929 Braves ball, signed early in the season. Farrell was traded to the Giants after playing only five games for Boston.<br /><br />I'd need to have the ball in my hands to do a better job, but here are a few:<br /><br />First Scan:<br /><br />1. George Sisler<br />2. ?<br />3. Bernie James<br />4. ?<br />5. Eddie Farrell<br />6. ?<br /><br />Second Scan:<br /><br />Can only decipher Taylor on the sweet spot, but to his immediate right is Percy Jones<br /><br />Third Scan:<br /><br />Too mottled. Try to take clear pics w/o the flash glare hitting the ball.<br /><br />Fourth Scan:<br /><br />1. Johnny Cooney<br />2. Bruce Cunningham<br />3. Ben Cantwell<br />4. ?<br />5. Percy Jones again<br />6. Kent Greenfield<br /><br />That'll be $75. Cash or check?<br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Jodi Birkholm</b><p>No problem. Sorry I couldn't nail 'em all for you. By the way, I wouldn't spend too much on this ball.
