Back when I was in about 3rd grade, I went to this Baseball camp. First of all this camp was amazing. But more importantly I found something really awesome. This other kid and I were just warming up, nothing unusual about that. Then there was a bad throw and I didn't catch it, or whatever happened, and the ball rolled under this hole in the fence into some bushes. I went chasing after the ball, and found a different ball. Turns out to be a New York Yankees 2001 World Series Baseball with all the signatures of the players. The ball was pretty torn up, though it was still pretty awesome. I never found the original ball that I went into look for, although it was still really awesome to find this ball. I can't read some of the signatures but I did see players such as Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada, Paul O'Neil, Bernie Williams, and many more too. I'm pretty positive that the signatures are not real, it's just like one you would buy at the team store, but it is still really awesome to find such a ball. Here are some pictures of the ball, the condition has gotten worse over the years even though it's in a good location, (at least I think it is in a good location) I tried putting it in a case, but with the seams broken it doesn't fit. Here are the pictures:

I was looking through an old box of cards I had lying around and I found a few interesting cards in it. They include a 2004 Jon Knott Bowman Gold Rookie card; a 2004 Seth Smith USA National Team Card; a Dontrelle Willis Donruss Studio 2005, Studio Stars; a 2004 Mike Mussina Upper Deck Power-Up Orange card; a 1962 Fleer Dusty Baker card; a Ed Walsh Topps All-Time Record holder card from 1985; a 2001 Upper Deck Chris Chambliss 1971 Rookie of the Year Award; and a Red Schoendienst 2003 Upper Deck Legendary Cuts card. Here are the Pictures:
2004 Jon Knott Bowman Gold Rookie card.
2004 Seth Smith USA National Team Card. (He was on the 2003 Team)
Dontrelle Willis Donruss Studio 2005, Studio Stars. This card is completely see-through.
2004 Mike Mussina Upper Deck Power-Up Orange card. It's suppose to be orange, not pink...
1962 Fleer Dusty Baker card.
Ed Walsh Topps All-Time Record holder card from 1985.
2001 Upper Deck Chris Chambliss 1971 Rookie of the Year Award.
Red Schoendienst 2003 Upper Deck Legendary Cuts card.

In that same box I found before, I also found another card. Except
this one was a autographed card. I'm pretty sure that it is real but I'm not 100% sure. It is a Steve Bechler Donruss Studio 2002 Rookie card. The autograph is a little smudged so that's one reason I'm thinking is real and it also just looks real too. Here's the picture:
