          That's revolting. I can't imagine why someone would have taken the time to keep that.

            It's not the first time something like this has happened...nor will it be the last.

            I'd pay $100 for it...though I think it would go for considerably more.

                I'm not sure it's authnetic. I have several doubelday skin fragments, and none look like that.

                        It was mint in 1893. Now, sadly, not!

                          It's simple, they kept it in case that one day Doubleday would turn against them....

                            Here's our big chance to prove once and for all that Abner Doubleday did NOT do steroids!!!

                              So Abner also invented the Thigh Young award.
                              Did he hide the ball when he pitched?
                              I wonder if, when Abner hit, if he tattooed the ball.
                              Or if his mom tanned him for not doing his chores?
