    Interesting/historic flea market pickup

    Cool Flea Market find - help on price?

    I picked this up at a local flea market. After figuring out what I thought the names looked like, I did some research and found the following:

    The baseball is an official AL major league baseball from 1951-1959.
    The autographs are from the following umpires, who all umpired in multiple World Series and All Star Games, in addition to all three umpiring the 1952 World Series between the New York Yankees and Brooklyn Dodgers.

    Jim Honochick, AL Umpire from 1949-1973, deceased 1994
    Larry Goetz, NL Umpire from 1936-1957, deceased 1962
    Lynton Ross Dusty Boggess, NL Umpire from 1944-1962, deceased 1968

    Boggess was also one of the umpires in the Don Larsen 1956 World Series perfect game.
