Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,440

The box, which retains a portion of the original paper seal, displays only a few tiny areas of light discoloration on the top flap, as well as a small tear along the fold line of the flap. In Excellent to Mint condition overall. This is an outstanding high-grade example of this scarce Official American League ball dating from the transitional period between baseball's "dead-ball" and "lively" ball eras.
