This is an authentic big league baseball with a real autograph by Pete Rose. I have had it for about 10 years and got it personally from Mr. Rose at his restaurant in Boca Raton, FL. Unlike many of these items listed for sale, this one only has Pete's signature; no personalized comments. Over the years, a slight discoloration (light coffee-colored stain) has appeared on part of the ball. The photos make it look more pronounced than it actually is. Paypal only. US sale only. Immediate shipment by USPS at buyer's cost of $6.50.
