Hunt Auctions lot 101 in their current monthly internet auction is a Neil Armstrong single-signed baseball. Opinions?

It is on brown baseball (1984-1994 era).

Stated provenance in lot attributes it to Lancaster, PA resident who has a lot of other non-typical baseballs in this collection, including three other astronauts.

The signature itself looks great (authentic), in my opinion - (with the caveat that the signature has been applied only by Armstrong's own hand, which would require a personal inspection of the item itself).

(Caveat added by me to reflect a message I received that artificial application of the signature should be considered; previously I had addressed only the validity of the signature itself.)

All times are CT (US)
