Well I've had this ball sitting on my desk for the past 5 years. Figured I'd find out what the ball is from and who's signatures they are.

Any help is appreciated

I think it was in a box of stuff that was left to me when a co-worker died.

I see a definite Bob Grim whom played for the Yankees.

ETA: Also Bill (signed as Moose) Skowron. Definitely looks like a ball from late 50's or early 60's Yankees

George Shuba played for Brooklyn Dodgers 1948-1955

Tommy Holmes - Yankees.
Looks like a ball signed by players from Yankees and Dodgers from different years. Possibly at a fan convention more likely than being signed 50 years ago, as Leonard Coleman was NL president from '94-99

Bob Grim - AL Rookie of the year 1954

Can't make out the others.  Have searched the 54 Yankee team roster and none of the others look from that team...

Yep I believe there is more than the Yankees on that ball. Also mid 50's. Grim played for the Yankees from 1954 to 1958 so I'd say the ball is in those years.

Good answers so far. The ball dates from the 1994-1999 era. Probably signed at a baseball card show where the players helped bring people in or some type of old timers reunion.

ETA: Typo

How did you end up with that?

ITAR fails again.
