Just trying to identify this old baseball before I pitch it in the trash. Can't figure it out. It's signed many times... I guess by kids. OSMA Scholars 3 Brooklyn 0 7-7-1953;
Stamps appears to read: Harwood Baseball 1858, Horsehide, #66?; I welcome you input! Thx
In the 1950’s, the U.S. Army requested a civilian committee of doctors to advise on matters relating to the mobilization of medical officers. A committee was appointed, with members from each district. Civil defense also received great emphasis during this time, and physicians from the OSMA gave lectures on civil defense procedures and participated in disaster drills in cooperation with local hospital
I still have a baseball that was signed by all the members of the
Little League team I was on...50 years ago. Might not mean squat
to someone else, but it sure means a lot to me.
The one I kick myself for losing is a baseball signed by both Mickey Mantle
and Jim Fregosi. Think I was about 7, and they had a baseball signing day
at Angel Stadium that my dad took my brother and I to...provenance is
it was signed in front of me.
This baseball is now 67 years old and may or may not be of historical significance, but it is still part of US history and it's cool.
Great website link from owlcreek too... I just love this piece of early advertising from their site.
