As professional players, managers, and owners made base ball their trade, the demands that were placed on the game’s equipment were increasingly high. The players were the star, but, the ball made them shine. Innovation was a constant necessity. The cork center ball forever changed the dynamics of ball meeting bat. Pitches had more purpose, hits had greater consequences. The game would never be the same again.
The base ball shown on this page is a thoroughly researched re-creation of an original 1910’s era Professional League base ball, executed in exacting detail. Double stitched, using the finest thread in the proper weight, this base ball contains exactly 116 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.
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 colors are Red & Black.
Please note that all base balls are made to order.
