Outstanding circa 1860's Lemon Peel Baseball.  This beautiful ball is made from one piece of leather, and has completely intact stitching.  The leather has a great look, and is still soft and supple.  The circumference of this early relic is 7.5 inches.

Circa 1900 Spalding Workman-style full web white leather baseball glove.  This great looking glove is in fantastic condition and features a bright red Spalding tag.  I call this a workman style, because although it has a full web, it is noticeably sparse in its padding,

Circa 1911 to 1913 Spalding full uniform including jersey and pants. 

Beautifully painted 1898 Lafayette versus Lehigh Trophy Figure Eight Baseball.

Beautiful Circa 1910 Spalding King of the Diamond Model Baseball.  This beauty is creamy white in color, with tight orange colored stitching.

Circa 1880 Yale Baseball team in dress clothes albumen photograph with a young Walter Camp included.

1909 Univ. of Vermont vs Massachusetts State Painted Trophy Figure 8 Style baseball. 

Circa 1870's Figure Eight style leather baseball.  The circumference of this beauty is 7 3/4 inches,  and it is a fairly heavy ball for it's size weighing 4.3 ounces.  Great looking early figure 8 ball, with an unsually small sweet spot as compared to modern balls. 

Circa 1920's Draper & Maynard Red and Green Stitch Official League Ball Baseball.  The great looking ball features the classic D&M dog logo. 

Beautiful Miniature Reach Model White Leather Baseball Glove Given as a Souvenir to attendees of the Testimonial Dinner held in 1910 to celebrate the Philadelphia Athletics winning the World Series.  The glove measures 5 inches by 5 inches, has very soft supple white leather, and retains its original pearl-looking button.  The palm of the glove retains very bold stamping which reads: "Testimonial Dinner to World's Champions October 27th, 1910.  American Base Ball Club of Philad'a"  Following the text is a Reach logo. 

1880's Shibe Sporting Goods Co. ROCKET model Smaller Sized Figure Eight style baseball.  This rare Shibe ball measures 8 inches in circumference, and its red stitching is in great shape.   This great baseball has a baseball diamond logo, with SHIBE within the diamond.  It also has ROCKET faintly imprinted on the sweet spot.  This Shibe baseball was made my Ben Shibe's sporting goods company, before his association with the AJ Reach company, and before his purchase of the Philadelphia Athletics in 1901.  This is the first sports piece I have ever come across from Shibe's sporting goods company.  What a great relic, with an interesting connection to the Shibe family and the Philadelphia Athletics.

Circa 1880's Well made FIgure Eight style leather baseball.  The circumference of this beauty is 7 1/2 inches, and it is in outstanding condition, with completely intact stitching.  The stitching has a very high quality look, and this is likely a professionally made figure eight.  The leather has a great patina, and displays beautifully. 

Circa 1910 Spalding Button Front Baseball Cap.  This attractive cap is mustard yellow and features an F on the front.  It has a button snap on the front area, and has a large button on top.  The cap is in beautiful condition, with the only flaw being that while all present, some of the leather band is loose in the interior.  The band features a Spalding tag that dates from the 1907 to 1913 time frame.  Great looking early cap.

Larger sized 1860's era Professionally made Lemon Peel Baseball. This ball is approaching the standard size of modern baseballs, with a circumference of 8.25 inches. This is the largest lemon peel I have ever handled. It has a very high quality, mostly hidden stitching that makes me believe this ball was professionally made. The ball does have a large split in the seam in one area, and a much smaller seperation in a 2nd area. The quality of this ball is also demonstrated by the fact that this ball is made with 2 layers of leather covering (noticeable at the split seam). Great early lemon peel with an outstanding look.

Circa 1860's to 1870's Bib Front Lightweight wool Baseball Sweater.  This sweater has a beautiful red color, and features a bib front with all of its original mother of pearl style buttons still in place.  This style of sweater was worn by both baseball players and fire fighters during the mid 19th century, but this sweater was purchased with an early hybrid style lemon peel baseball.  There is no way to say for certain however if its original use was for baseball or firefighting.  These bib front sweaters are nearly impossible to find, and this one has an outstanding look.

Circa 1890's Spalding Decker Patent Crescent Padded Catcher's Mitt.

Circa 1911 to 1913 Spalding Cadet Collar Baseball jersey that originated from a Bridgeton NJ estate.  This jersey has nice pin striping, and features a diamond shaped B logo applied to the left shoulder area.  A very attractive early Spalding jersey.

Turn of the Century Reach brand Reeded Apron-style Catcher's Chest Protector.  This chest protector has wooden reeds sewn into the canvas padding, and features a Reach tag on its interior.

Circa 1890's Spalding Axletree No O.X. Ring Bat.  This great looking early Spalding bat measures 34 inches and features a bold Spalding trademark and Axletree marking.  The color of the rings has faded but a small ring, and then a large band at the end of the barrel are easily noted. 

Circa 1910-1915 Harry Davis Louisville Slugger 14 inch mini Decal Bat.  This bat is in beautiful condition, with approximately 90% of the decal present.  The decal is the rarer vertical style, and has very vibrant colors.

Circa 1930's House of David Horace Partridge brand pinstriped baseball uniform.  This uniform has been confirmed by the House of David museum of Benton Harbor Michigan as being a 1935 House of David West Coast barnstorming team uniform.  To quote the museum director, the west coast traveling team "featured some of the roughest, toughest players ever from the H of D"
