New Jersey Couple Finds Only Known Baseball Signed By Henry Ford In Box Of Knickknacks
One of the thrills of attending The National Sports Collectors Convention in Atlantic City this past August was seeing the valuable surprises people brought into to the auction house booths. At Lelands, a leading sports auction house, a man even walked in with the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle he owned as a boy and re-discovered in his mother’s attic. It’s worth about $15,000.
A New Jersey couple stole the show with one of the most exciting autograph finds in recent memory: The only known baseball signed by Henry Ford deemed genuine by JSA, a top authenticator. I also reached out to their rival, PSA/DNA; to the best of their knowledge, they have never signed off on a Henry Ford baseball, either.
