The shellenback looks a little similar but Im not sure it is his autograph. Id like to find out who the other guys are before I do anything. I appreciate all the help from everyone

I'm unsure but it looks like the end of unknown is a ch or ck as was mention by lambeau. I was just looking at the rosters from 1967 and 1968 but if it's another year than there would probably be more possibilities.

The manager(s) in 1967 were Harry Walker and Danny Murtaugh. In 1968 it was Larry Shepard.
EDIT: The only John I'm seeing on the two rosters is John Gelnar and that's not his graph.

Ok, I'm almost thinking that the signatures were obtained when the Phillies were in town in 1967. Their manager was Gene Mauch, which is in the one picture. I also see signatures of Johnny Callison & Clay Dalrymple.

Ok, I think I have them all figured out.
Pic 3 goes like this from top to bottom
Pic 4 is Mazeroski that you already knew
Pic 5 is Wills which you already knew
Pic 6 is Johnny Callison & Donn Clendenon, but he only put a "D" for his first name
Pic 7 is Gene Mauch
The ball is from 1967 as Ribant was traded to the Tigers after the '67 season & Wills didn't go to the Pirates until '67.
I've narrowed it down to 2 games where the Phillies were in Pittsburgh where Ribant would have been in the dugout instead of the bullpen. He pitched 3.2 innings to start the game on Tuesday, April 25, 1967 & only Clendenon wasn't in the starting lineup. Dalrymple hit a HR off of Ribant in that game. Ribant also came in to pinch run on Sunday, June 11, 1967 & only Dalrymple wasn't in the starting lineup.

Thats amazing! You just saved me 10 hours of searching lol. I cant thank you enough for that. So my next step is find out where to get the ball authenticated at.

Also forgot to mention, about the other ball that Stargell signed. If they were obtained at the game in April, he went 2 for 4 with 4 RBI's & 1 HR!
