Antiques Roadshow: Milwaukee, Wis. - Hour Three

Airs Monday, October 22, 2012 at 8 p.m. on KPBS TV

Above: At ANTIQUES ROADSHOW in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, appraiser Simeon Lipman of Heritage Auction Galleries hits one out of the park when he catches sight of these two baseballs, autographed by Milwaukee Braves legend Warren Spahn. The signatures were obtained by the owner's grandfather, a photographer for the Milwaukee Journal. Lipman explains that these pieces are milestone game balls - one from Spahn's 327th winning game, which made him the winningest left-handed pitcher of all time, and the other from Spahn's 300th winning game, the gold standard for pitchers. Lipman predicts an auction value of $11,000 to $14,000 for the pair.

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW wraps up its visit to the Cream City - Milwaukee, Wisconsin - nicknamed for the locally manufactured, off-white bricks that mark the city's mid-19th-century architecture.
