Some of the balls evidence a decent amount of toning; to the contrary, others look really, really sharp.

Barry Bonds (762 - JSA H99557); Hank Aaron (755 - JSA X17214); Alex Rodriguez (696 - S97851); Willie Mays (660 - S97847); Ken Griffey, Jr. (630 - S34224); Jim Thome (612 - Q30014); Sammy Sosa (609 - P95921); Albert Pujols (604 - P82736); Frank Robinson (586 - T29619); Mark McGwire (583 - JSA X50136); Harmon Killebrew (573 - S97841); Rafael Palmeiro (569 - JSA W161995); Reggie Jackson (563 - JSA H43489); Manny Ramirez (555 - JSA H24713); Mike Schmidt (548 - P55944); David Ortiz (541 - JSA S20944); Mickey Mantle (536 - UDL 21724); Willie McCovey (521 - JSA H99555); Frank Thomas (521 - S70396); Ted Williams (521 - Q01104); Ernie Banks (512 - P55972); Eddie Mathews (512 - T61303); Gary Sheffield (509 - S31238); and Eddie Murray (504 - T61298).
Qualifications to be noted are as follows:
• Mantle - UDA authenticated, the "original" authenticator, dating to ~20 years ago; includes original pouch, COA with matching hologram card, and box. Evidences toning. Inscription, "No. 7"
