Now That's What I Call A COA

An item I didn't include in my Andy Pafko's Birthday Megapost was this new autographed ball I received as a Christmas gift from my parents.


It's also my first inscribed Pafko ball as he wrote "1957 W.S Champs" on the side in honor of the 1957 World Series Championship that the Braves won over the Yankees.


The ball also came with a standard certificate of authenticity [COA] letting me know the ball was authentic. It also came with an additional piece of authentication, a photograph of Andy Pafko actually signing the ball! It's a great way to authenticate the ball and it reminds me of those great Donruss/Playoff relic cards that would actually include a photo of the complete memorabilia piece on the back of the cards. This photo also brings my total of original Andy Pafko photos to three!
