Replicas of early lemon peel baseballs from the 1850s and
1870s. Made to be used, but beautiful enough for display!
Dubbed lemon peels because they’re made from one piece
of leather; softer but more durable than standard modern
baseballs. Perfect for bare-handed catch, baseball, pepper,
and underhand catch with kids. A timeline of baseball’s firsts
on each tin.
Stitched by hand
Firmer ball than 1850's -1860's brown balls
