Lost Advertisements — “The Spalding”

1 Nov


An advertisement from 1899 for the official ball of the National League:

“The Spalding” Name or Trademark Represents the one Standard of Quality in Athletic Goods

“Spalding’s Official League Ball is the adopted ball of the National League, and is the only ball that can be used in the official games of the National league.  Each ball is carefully inspected, wrapped in tin foil, packed in a box and securely sealed.  Accept no substitutions.”
