I guess I am the only one who saw it and thought it was kinda ugly.

Not the only one... I took note of it early on, but it didn't float my boat either. The numerous dents would have bugged me, and I might have dwelled on them more than the ball itself. Interesting piece though.

Dents can be taken out nice and easy, though at a real cost, likely $1500. I was very tempted to buy, I bid pretty high. What are everyone's thoughts on value? The ball dates to c.1870 not c.1890 I would think, despite the history provided, given H style, size, "base ball", and content.

I thought 2 to 2500. Worth getting repaired. Definitely earlier than described. 1870s when that type of ball was being used.
