Remember, I'm the guy who thinks that the wrong date is easy to explain. See post #6 in this thread.

Before Al Clark got caught and went to prison, his word, as the home plate umpire for the game, would have been considered good provenance.

But then it wasn't.

As a life-long Nolan Ryan fan and collector, I want to believe the ball is a real game-used ball from his 300th win; that is an item that would be the centerpiece of my collection. Then again, I've wanted to believe alot of things were real, that turned out to not be real.

Basically, for me, it comes down to this:

Are there factors about the ball that say it COULD BE real? Yes.

The problem is, there are MORE factors regarding the ball, as Doug has clearly pointed out (and that I remember reading about personally "back in the day") that lead a "REASONABLE" person to believe the ball IS NOT real.

So, while it COULD BE real, a PREPONDERANCE OF THE EVIDENCE, indicates it is MORE LIKELY to be NOT real.

Steve
