Default Possible 1948 Indians World Series ball

This one I have had for many years. It had many signatures but some cannot be read. There are five or six I can make out. What is your opinion on this one?

I am not sure if I have most of the signatures in these pics. Your opinions are welcome. I also could have sold this ball but need to know before someone gets stuck with it. There is no ball branding on this ball.

Looks stamped to me. None of the signatures overlap and they all appear to be printed in place.

it is a souvenir stamped ball and not from 1948. boudreau, not lopez, was a manager in 48. in that condition, value is about $10.

Al Rosen played only five games for the 1948 Indians. I think it's highly unlikely he would be included on a souvenir ball from that season.

So you all say it is a stamped ball? I believed the Ruth/Gehrig but this one looked good to me. I guess I do not need to go to the Chicago show at the end of the month. You all saved me a trip. I do respect all opinions. That is why I am on here. I might pop a couple other balls on here. Then I will have enough to take to the Cleveland boys home, like I did on my old baseball cards years ago.

You can usually spot a stamped ball by looking at where the signatures are. None of these signatures overlap with another, like they've been placed on the ball rather than signed. Signature placement is usually a dead giveaway on the stamped balls.
