Proving a ‘Black Sox’ Ball is Real

1919 Redlegs
Local Reds fan Tom Winstel has had a baseball from the 1919 World Series passed down from him by Father and Grandfather. The ‘Black Sox’ scandal world series ball is the subject of this article on the Wall Street Journal Online. Though Winstel has no desire to sell the ball, it’s approximate value is in question due to lack of provence – or hard proof that it was actually used in play during the 1919 World Series. Experts deem the story likely given it’s markings, but no solid proof actually exists. Not long, but an interesting read from the collectors side of things.
