2 old baseballs
by Jack Brown
Jack asked: I have 2 good to fair condition baseballs, all there just dirty.
One is about 1/2 to 2/3 the size of the other which is regular.
They, I know are from the 1930,s. I do not know what the small ball was used for.
I would like to sell them. Have no knowledge of value.
Rick answered: Jack, thank you for your question.
I am not a baseball memorabilia person; but if you look on the internet for Baseball Memorabilia Dealers, you could send them a photo of what you have, and I am sure someone out there could at least let you know their origin.
They will need to see a picture of them, to have any chance to pin down from whence they came.
Might be hard to do over the internet or telephone. Might see if you can find a Memorabilia Dealer close to your location, so you could talk face to face and have the item in hand.
Hope that helped a little. If they are indeed from the 30's, it is special just because they still exist. If they are MLB, may be worth something.
Generally speaking I think baseballs become valuable due to who signed the ball, and what the occasion was of that signing....Don Larsen's World Series no hitter for the Yankees, etc.
Good luck as you go forward.
Yours in baseball,
