Default Help with autographed ball please

Hello, I'm hoping y'all can help me with an autographed baseball. I've been helping my elderly aunt clean out some closets and I found an old baseball that her husband got when he was a kid. He passed away 10 years ago and his parent are gone as well, so there is no one I can ask about this ball. My aunt believes it is Brooklyn Dodgers as my uncle lived in Brooklyn when he received this ball. The story my aunt remembers is that my uncle's father was an exec somewhere and knew someone from the team who got the team to sign the ball because my uncle was a big Dodgers fan.
Some of the autographs are pretty faded. The ball has been kept in a sock for 65 years.
I 'think' I have deciphered two signatures which leads me to believe this is a 1954 or 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers ball, but admit I could be completely wrong. I have done some research online and realize that if she wants to sell this ball she will need to get it authenticated, but I'd like to find out if that would be worth doing. I read that y'all can probably tell me if I'm right about the ball and if its a stamped or fake. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you so much in advance!
