Default Can somebody tell me if this baseball is what I think it is?

So this might sound really dumb, but as I was going through a bunch of totes of stuff that my grandfather had all kinds of odds and ends thrown into I came across this baseball. There's no telling how long this thing sat in the basement, but honestly it looks like at some point Fido, Lassy, or maybe even Clifford decided it looked like a toy. Which is really kind of depressing because even though at first I didn't think much about it because I don't really have much experience with autographs and sports memorabilia, once I looked up the name that stood out the most, I started piecing together the rest. Now I know this is my first post here and I swear I'm not just trying to get somebody to do the work for me, but I'm guessing there's a couple people here that will be able to tell what this is right away (assuming it's real) without doing all the searching and narrowing down of years that I had to, lol. I'm just kind of curious to see if anybody comes up with the same thing I have. Some of the names are pretty faded, and the one side is kind of rough thanks to Fido, but just in case I bought a little case for it until I know for sure.

Would anybody happen to have an idea what it is I have here?

Default Sorry

Ok, so I didn't realize that the 2 pictures of the bad side(s) of the ball didn't post for some reason, let's try that again....

If that is supposed to be Lou Gehrig on the sweet spot, the signature is 100% not real. I can't answer as to the other signatures though, but the Lazzeri looks ok (although I'm no expert on Lazzeri).

Thanks for responding....sadly I'm not an expert on any of them. Although do you mind if I ask what makes you say its not real? I'm just asking because although it is really faded and rather hard to get a good photo of, to me it almost seems to match some of the examples I can find online. Again, I'm no expert, I just wouldn't want to dismiss something rather important.

It's been really hard to get a photo that seems to show every little detail you can see up close. From the names I've been able to piece together I've narrowed it down to either 1935, 1936, or possibly even 1937 Yankees.

I'm really not trying to doubt anybodies expertise, I just know that it seems almost impossible to get a picture that shows everything you can see looking at it up close.

For starters, his L and G looked nothing like that on (which is on the ball).

Just to ask the question, is the signature on the sweet spot an earlier version of Lefty Gomez, hence why it looks nothing like Gehrig?
