Default Need Advice on Selling (Modern Player) Autographed Baseballs

I don't venture into this memorabilia forum very often, so please have patience with me.

My family has gone to the Mariners Spring training in Peoria, Arizona for years. Over the years, I've accumulated a bunch of autographed baseballs that I need to unload. The problem is, I don't know where or how to sell them. I tried listing them on the Net 54 BST forum (my post said "make an offer"), with no responses. I've heard that eBay isn't a good place for autographs, because people don't trust the claim of authenticity.

I'm would be willing to sell these go at a very reasonable price, they should be making some kid or collector happy rather than sitting on my shelf. I would guarantee they will pass any authentication test. Each ball is signed in sharpie pen.

Can anyone make any suggestions as to what would be the appropriate forum or auction house to sell these? Thanks.

You could try one of the auction houses that isn't huge. Maybe Halls?

Typical disclaimer- I've been a customer since 1977, and consigned some stuff last year. Their cut was a bit big, but the results on some of the items were much better than I could have done on Ebay. Plus some of the stuff I consigned was really slow selling... It worked out well overall.

Feel free to use my name if you contact them.

I'd take a Beltre, Ibanez, Guillen, and Washburn if the price is right. Thanks, please PM me.

I highly recommend consigning everything to Judy & John Burk of

They are the most reputable people on earth and they offer a fantastic selection of material that is not "auction worthy" for the larger auction houses.

Default is a sports autograph auction house of reasonable reputation and they have regular auctions. It originally was Mike Gutierrez Auctions, but Gutierrez went to Heritage and his workers took over (with Gutierrez's approval) and changed the name. They have lots of more affordable lots, including stuff like your collection. I bought from them a few times and had no troubles with money or shipping or anything like that.

Bricol Sports Auctions sells lots like these (kinds of stars) and usually it brings $5-7 per ball when lotted in a clump like this. The problem is that many of them are quite minor stars and the worst part, is signed in sharpie.
