1850’s 6-Panel Lemon Peel Baseball

This vintage baseball is a very scarce Six Panel, 1850's Lemon Peel style baseball. This unusual variation on the four piece lemon peel baseball is a true rarity. We have handled more than our fair share of 19th century baseballs over the last 24 years. Many standard lemon peels and a handful of variations. We are pleased to offer this example as an exceptional representation from the era. The six piece construction comes together nice and tightly at each end. The stitching is firmly intact and the baseball retains it's spherical shape ideally!.


19th Century Figure-8 style baseball

A very impressive 19th Century Figure-8 style Baseball. This fine antique baseball has a perfect patina and looks amazing. The above image is poor, the ball is very impressive in reality. The medium brown leather is consistent throughout. This vintage baseball holds it's spherical shape perfectly and has all of the original stitching tightly in place.


19th Century Baseball - BOUNDER No. 15

This impressive baseball dates from the 19th century and amazingly it remains in flawless MINT condition. There is no maker identified on the baseball. Most likely it was from a box which held four or six baseballs, which was common during this era.


Vintage 19th Century Figure Eight Baseball - 1860's

Vintage 19th Century Figure Eight Baseball - 1860's. This spectacular antique baseball originates from a unique era in the construction of the baseball. It represents a period of change when the lemon-peel stitch pattern was becoming obsolete and its replacement, the "figure eight," began to see regular use. As the figure eight stitch pattern remains the constant for modern baseballs, this baseball exemplifies the beginning of the configuration that is still used in today's game.


1840-60's Lemon-Peel Style Baseball

1840-60's Lemon-Peel Style Baseball. This is an exceptional antique baseball which dates back to the days of Abner Doubleday. This is the same style of baseball which is displayed at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. Amazingly, the leather has remained supple and the stitching is completely intact.
