One of the baseballs has a significant impact mark on a side panel along with general usage wear. The other baseball also exhibits evident use including a few areas of wear. While it is impossible to ascertain why Joe DiMaggio kept the offered baseballs, it is almost certain that they were important in some fashion as Joe was documented on several occasions to have been "keeping significant baseballs from his career". Final World Series home run ball, game winning hit from a significant game, final out ball from a pennant clinching game?
