I recently received a ball from a private signing Orange County Sports Cards held with Nolan Ryan. I always keep an eye on upcoming signings both of the public and private variety. If the price is right, I don't mind adding people to my collection, particularly major league baseball hall of famers. I actually placed my order a few months ago, and the ball came in the mail Christmas Eve, as a nice little gift. As you can see in the photo below, I chose the Hall of Fame baseball to be signed underneath the HOF logo, as opposed to a regular ball signed on the sweet spot. The ball is also authenticated by Ryan's company.
