Baseball – Stitching and Covering
This print has 2 patents on it. The first is for the “figure-8” cover and stitching. The second is for the re-issue of the last core patent that took the ball out of the deadball period. The baseball with the blue stamping is a Reach ball – who made the American League balls. The one with the black stamping is a Spalding ball – who made the National League balls.
