My brother once again comes through for me...calls me up from the antique store and asks me if I'm interested in a 1925 American League Baseball in the box with signatures on it. He named a few signatures and I knew it was a Lincoln ball...of course I told him to grab it.

I believe this ball is from 1930...most all of the names match up to the SABR site...there are a lot of question marks on that page, but this ball would seem to confirm most of those names. Best name on the ball is Les Nunamaker which I am absolutely thrilled to have his auto. The ball appears to have been owned by Bob Roland a member of the team as "Bob R." is written on the outside of the box.

Great find! The ball and the box look like they are in terrific shape.

It's in beautiful shape..must have seen very little to no daylight over the last 82 years.
