Memorabilia mavens get in the game for this lot of (4) vintage baseballs in original packaging. Amazing authentic details emanate from a 1931 D&M OLB 190C model (“5”) stamped “Horsehide Cover, Cork Center” in original box (EX-MT) with stunning gloss, vivid colors and featuring “The Lucky Dog Kind” logo. (2) 1952-59 Reach OAL/Harridge specimens merit (“7”) in box (VG-EX, minor writing) and (“5”) with glossy (EX-MT) wrapper. Rounding out this group of venerable orbs is a 1949-51 Spalding ONL/Frick ball (“6-7”) in a (VG-EX) box. More on our website.
The (3) boxes and the (1) wrapper in this lot all show in very appealing, display-worthy condition. The (3) balls listed as “in box” display bold printed graphics, the Reach ball “in wrapper” has moderately faded graphics. The writing on the Reach box noted above is done neatly in pen and reads “1958 KC Athletics 32 Sigs”, the ball in the box is not signed. The Spalding box is printed on the top flap as “The Adopted Ball of the National League”.
