Default PSA/DNA sealed ball question

Hi Guys,
I recently purchased a Stan Musial PSA/DNA graded 9.5 baseball that is sealed by PSA. When I received the ball, it shifted during shipping. The signature is on the bottom and you can't see it at all.
A couple of years ago I purchased a Hank Aaron ball and it shifted and the signature is partially obscured.

Does anyone know of a way to move the ball without breaking the seal?

Thanks,
Ryan

Interesting. I had a Tom Seaver like that and finally took it out. I think it already had a LOA or sticker for verification purposes.

Nothing against PSA, but I can't figure out why anyone would want a signed ball sealed in a cube with what amounts to a giant bumper sticker from a third party plastered across the front.

I never liked the sealed baseballs because what if you have a ball that grades a 10 and shows it on the cube and over the next few years it starts to tone up which they all do then what, your ball is not a 10 anymore and try and selling it as that with toning. PSA has a good thing going there since at the time the ball is graded after it tones now it's your problem and not there's. That ball grading always to me seemed to be a joke.

The same issue applies to CGC slabbed comics, which indicate paper quality. Some comics are also prone to slide around inside the shell damaging corners. So, you can end up with a book in much lower grade than the label indicates. The conventional wisdom is those books will never be cracked from the slab.

Those things are a pain in the butt. I just spun it really fast in my hand and jerked it to a sudden stop. It would only move about a quarter inch at a time so you have to do it repeatedly. I was always afraid it would mark up the ball, but you don't have much of a choice if you want to keep it sealed. I did this on a few and I didn't see any damage to the ball. You might want to gently seperate the two halves just enough to relieve some tension compressing against the ball. You have to be super careful that the sticker doesn't come off though.

Thanks for the responses. By jerking it around I am now at least able to see the auto.
