The man I got this from told me this ball was his when he grew up in the 1930s. It is one of the nicest vintage baseballs I have ever seen, the pictures tell the tale. Really great aging/patina, still rock solid condition. Stitching is tight, no rot. You won't be sorry if you're the winner of this ball, I promise you that! It has no markings on it that I can see. This would be great displayed in any number of ways, especially as a matching ball for a vintage glove and bat.
