From the late 19th century into the dawn of the 20th century, the Official League Ball represented the very best ball that money could buy. So good in fact, the ball was used by the elite players in all leagues from the college level up to the National League. Interestingly, the NL did not adopt it’s own signature style of ball until late into the first decade of the 1900’s.
The base ball shown on this page is a thoroughly researched re-creation of an original 1900 era Official League Ball executed in exacting detail. Single stitched, using the finest thread in the proper weight, this base ball contains exactly 132 individual stitches per panel. Each ball is hand-cut, hand-stitched, and labeled by hand using the same techniques that would have been applied to the original.
Made by a single craftsman in extremely limited quantities, this base ball is a work of art that celebrates the great history of the national pastime.
Each ball is wrapped in tissue and foil and is presented in a custom, hand labeled box which is personally signed by the maker.
Choose from Pure White or Vintage Cream leather with Red or White stitching.
Please note that all base balls are made to order.
