Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Based on the photographs and description provided, the subject of this appraisal is a 2010 NFC North Division Champion NFL Game Ball presented to former NFL player Henry Melton for the 12/20/2010 Monday Night Football game between the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings.
According to the current owner, the piece was acquired via storage locker auction. The piece is not authenticated, is not autographed, and appears to be in good condition.
The most similar comparable piece forming the price basis of this item is a 2012 Patriots AFC Championship game ball presented to Kyle Arrington that sold through Heritage Auctions for $510.00 in August 2020. This Melton piece is, unfortunately, not quite as desirable as a piece from a conference championship.
In consideration of the factors noted, a Fair Market Value (pre-auction estimate) of this piece would be estimated at $200 to $400.
