Question ID: 728229
I have a 1979 49er team football, which I have no idea how much it is
worth.  It was given to my son about  10 years ago.  It has no papers
with it.  How would I go about authenticating it and finding out what
the worth is?  Can someone out there help me???

1965 Signed Team football sold on eBay for $200.00 USD

Does it have Joe Montana's signature? I believe that was his first
year with the 49ers

In addition to Montana's signature, it is also possible that you have
O.J. Simpson's signature on there (as he also played on the 1979

There are a number of companies such as this one:

which authenticate sports signatures.

Verifying the authenticity of the signatures will invariably increase
the value of the item. The problem is that such services are generally
somewhat expensive.

My first step would be to visit some local sports memorabilia/baseball
card shops or such a convention (if one is in town) to see what they
say. This might give you an idea of whether it would be worthwhile to
have it authenticated.

I hope this helps.

Have a good day.
