Default 4 Autographed Shop at Home Baseballs

My dad gave me these. He said he bought them from Shop at Home in the early nineties. No idea whether to bother paying to get them authenticated or to just list them on eBay as is. What do you think the value is of each and all 4? And is it worth paying to get them authenticated ?

Mantle is definitely a fake.

Aaron looks suspect as well.

Williams might well be ok... looks pretty good in most respects.

Mays looks decent as well...

But you may want to post in the Autograph Forum, to get more responses from the guys who specialize in this segment.

The Mantle is definitely a forgery.

I'd like to see a better view of the Williams.

During the 1990's and the Operation Bullpen era, Shop At Home sold approximately $750,000 of forgeries to consumers.

From what I can see, the Williams does not look good either.

It's both sad and disgusting that purchasers of Shop At Home forgeries are twenty years later discovering that they've been in possession of a non-authentic Mickey Mantle.

I never saw them sell an authentic autograph. They where supplied by B&J and Howards Not one real autograph came from them.
They included five hundred hr balls Mantle Williams on the sweet spot, Koufax.Joe Dimaggio and many more.

Shelly would definitely know that better than I would.

Approximately $750,000 in forgeries.
