Default A mysterious Baseball Badge

Hi guys,

Thought this one might be of interest to fellow net54 members:

http://thenewyorkclipper.com/a-myste...aseball-badge/

Hope I'm not offending anyone by posting a link to my blog [which I just happened to start writing a couple of days ago]

I'm still learning the art of blogging so please excuse this rookie writer's shameless plug.

That's good research Jimmy. I never paid much attention to that pin but now that I look at it, it looks to be made later than the 1860's. But I'm not an expert, just saying.

Thank you guys!
That's the kind of ego boost I needed to keep on writing.
I was ready to quit after 3 days with no feedback

Feel free to share my 'articles' next time you feel something I write is relevant to forum readers as it felt cheap doing it myself. You have forum owner's permission [I think]

Good work, Jimmy! I've never seen the " New York Clipper " site. How long has it been up?

Thanks Gary!

From 1853 to 1923 and just 3 days in 2012...

Feeling ready to guest blog about some of your amazing 1860s images?

Thank you Scott.

John's a pretty knowledgeable fellow and has probably seen and read them all by now, so that was really gratifying.

Nice read Jimmy! One question and sorry if I missed it. If not Brooklyn then where was the ball club from?

Thanks Joe.
Maybe there was an amateur club in Greenwich named Excelsior at the time but I think the 'inventor' just used that name for the original design considering it was a very common/popular name for clubs (since the 1860s.)
I haven't seen another one or didn't find any kind of advertisement while writing the post, so I'm thinking this was some kind of proof piece that originated from Mr. Child himself.
