Default 19th century

For me it is only about my personal taste. I saw it when I first entered the hobby and was focusing on vintage memorabilia. And not something I could afford....(now either....lol) It was a vintage belt buckle that was won and awarded to someone if I remember correctly named Charles Force of the Rockford Forest City baseball club in the year 1866 for "good base running". It was sold in a Hunt Auction about 30 years ago or so. Never seen it surface since.

I know A Giants collector who includes Troy 19th century items, if you really want to go back to early history. Incidentally the 1869 Red Stockings played a number of Games in San Francisco, and a cricket match.

Bryan- I believe at least one King Kelly bat has come to auction.

Bob- I wish I had known the silver ball was available.

It is difficult coming up with a 19th century Holy Grail. Most pieces are unique or close to it. The most obvious exception would be Peck and Snyder trade cards and cdvs of the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings, if we are to consider them memorabilia and not cards. They are definitely historically significant and obtainable.

For our little backwater memorabilia niche, the answer is obvious -- an example of either Buckley's Game Board of 1867
or Sebring's Parlor Base-Ball of 1866-1868. Buckley's may have never actually gone into production, but Sebring's was
advertised in major periodicals of the day. Each could lay claim to being the first-ever tabletop baseball game. In both cases,
however, not a single example is known to survive. Having one turn up would be miraculous.
