Default Babe Ruth signed ball value

I know someone who is thinking of selling a signed Babe Ruth ball and asked me what it is worth. Truth is I have no idea so I thought I would turn to you guys.

Here are the details. The ball is signed by Ruth, Casey Stengal, and many others but they are not readable. I would rate the two sigs a 2. I don't know what type of ball it is but would assume it is a Harridge ball as Ruth signed it for the owner during a Spring Training game.

The ball is not in the best of shape as the owner played catch with it for years until he realized that was a bad idea.

The authenticity is rock solid. The seller received it directly from Ruth in April 1948. He has a copy of the local newspaper article covering the game and Babe Ruth's attendence. The seller's name is also mentioned in that article.

I have a photo of the ball but it is a poor one. I will upload it later today.

Thanks in advance for your help,
Bryan

Well, that wasnt long before Babe passed. Id say if they r even partly readable, its got some value, but probably not an awful lot. The provenance is nice to have though. I look forward to the pictures.

Default Deal breaker...

The major problem with this "Ruth" ball is that Ruth never signed it.

Yeah, sad to say, that is not Babe's autograph.
