Professional Dead Ball 1870's


Starting with my own 1870’s League Ball, this Professional Dead Ball is an inspired re-creation of a ball originally offered by the Shibe Company of Philadelphia. It is unknown whether these styles were offered for public sale or if they were early “official” base balls that were commissioned by the individual teams or leagues. Either way, they are beautifully marked and I am happy to include them in the collection.

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.

Stitch color is White.

Please note that all base balls are made to order.
