So, by looking at my pic posted above do you think it would be worth the cash to get graded? I mean i know its real i got a COA.

yeah it would be with it..grading any autograph or grading any card increases it's value if its done by a reputable company.

PSA/DNA is the best option for grading and authentication of baseballs.

Have to agree with Chuck on this one, PSA/DNA are the experts and having their grading & authentication will bring you the highest $$$ if you ever decide to sell it. Very nice Mantle ball, I'm jealous of the No. 7 inscription as those sell for a premium. Post some pics when you get it back, very interested to see what it grades at.

its an inscription technically so its worth more than his name alone

This poster nailed it, items with an inscription accompanying the autograph sell for more than items with just the autograph. I've been tracking Mantle balls on eBay (want to add one to my collection) and balls with the "No. 7" inscription typically sell for $100-$200 higher.

I always try to get items with inscriptions as they are worth more and they just look really cool. Some of my favorite inscriptions are the year a player was elected to the Hall of Fame, a career milestone (500 home runs, etc), or denoting a historical sports event. Here are some examples from my collection:

Ernie Banks Baseball with his HOF year

Jim Thome Baseball with the date of his 500th home run

And a personal favorite, a Kirk Gibson bat with the date of his famous World Series home run
