This ball was previously certified by PSA/DNA which leads us to catalog it with the Clubhouse exceptions noted. However, that LOA is no longer with the ball so it would need to be re-submitted. The ball last sold at SCP Auctions in 2007 for $2,761 and we are fairly certain PSA/DNA would have the records of their previous certification. Offered here at a discount to original sale price, even with the increase in demand for such team autographed baseballs.
