I have not seen one of those before but I do not collect sports as the overwhelming majority of material is forged - often with crushed paint pens which obscure all detail by bleeding into themselves. Maybe another sports collector can ID the sticker. However, the sticker, unless it leads to a cert with a photo of your exact ball, is absolutley meaningless - to me at least. Assuming it is a "genuine" hologram from a "service" it could have been removed and restuck to anything. I looked online and found a LOT of stuff signed by him (apparently) and all had similar oval stickers. I would focus on the only thing that matters when you resell (to a collector anyway) - the signature. Like in coins - the coin, not the holder
has a signed ball with a hologram not unlike yours. It is a shame to see crushed paint pens used though
they can and often do flake, fade and peel - especially on a ball. A quick check reveals a lot of those online at different dealers - he must be signing everything in sight - many with this or a similar hologram. All around $399. In the guides I have that list him a signed ball lists for around $150 - but as I said, sports is not my thing. The signatures I looked at quickly all appear to display differences with yours - but I don't know if any of them are genuine. You need to find some known authentic exemplars of his autograph on a ball from this period - (sometime after paint pens were introduced).

UDY sticker sounds to me like an upper deck product. Not sure.

Yes.Its UpperDeck. I was contacted by Mr. Rivkin at Upper Deck Authenticated/CSR and he says its an original UD holo. Also said theyd re-hologram it for me and include a new matching COA for $20. Thanks for all the help guys. JR
