1945/46 World War 2 Veteran’s baseball

So again, from a friend’s father who served in the Pacific theater in WW2. The names of the areas on the hall were probably the places he had been. Anyone else have similar items. Are these collectible and is there a market for these? Thanks for looking.

    I would find it difficult to believe the ink would have not faded by now but maybe not

    I have a Ted Williams signed ball that my father got in person from Ted in 1960 and the ink is fine, but I also have a few softballs from 2000 era that was signed by my teammates when we won the championship and the ink pretty much faded

    All I know is what I’ve been told by a good friend that this along with all her father’s WW2 mementos were in her parents home in the basement for the past 80 years. They recently both passed at around 100 years old and she found this in their basement. He served in the Asian theater and also in the bag were Japanese flags, knives, coins, paper currency, medals, ribbons
