Dozen (12) Original 1982 MLB All-Star Game Baseballs in Original Box - Montreal:
Incredible Find!! Dozen (12) "Game Ready" Original 1982 MLB All-Star Game Baseballs in the Original Box. The game was played at Olympic Stadium in Montreal, home of the Expos.DescriptionOriginal "Game Ready" Dozen balls from the 1982 MLB All-Star Game. The Montreal All-Star Game logo is stamped on one side panel. These beautiful Rawlings balls are stamped with MLB Commissioner Bowie Kent Kuhn's Signature on the sweet spot. They are also stamped Haiti on the reverse side sweet spot, the location of the Rawlings facility that made MLB balls until about 1986.The balls have been rubbed down in "Delaware River Mud" as umpires have been doing to all MLB game balls before game time for over 70 years.These balls were prepped for the annual American vs National League mid-summer classic but never made it into the game.
The baseballs display varying degrees of staining from being "mudded". I have included 3 photos to display the degrees.1 Ball is 95% clean, shows a few spots but is still bright white6 Balls display moderate soiling (you can feel the extra grip the mud brings to the leather cover)5 Balls display heavy soiling (you can feel the tackiness of the mud)
The very fact that these baseballs exist is amazing. Together as a dozen in the original box with the onion paper wrappers is baffling!!
These baseballs have never been offered for sale and will likely never come come up again once they enter the private collection of the sale winner. Good luck in your offerding!!
