This is what Ken's brother remembers: Their father was negotiating an invesment deal with Joe DiMaggio. He thinks it was to invest in a chain or resturants or something. DiMaggio ultimatley did not invest but while the negotiations were going on Ken's father got Mr. DiMaggio to autograph this ball for his son Ken.
DiMaggio wrote To Ken - With Best Wishes Joe DiMaggio. There appears to be a 2nd Autograph from Joe DiMaggio dated 5-5-69 but I believe that is one that came printed on the baseball (see 2nd photo). There are a couple of yellowish/brown smudges on the ball (see photos 1, 2, 5 & 6).
