Ring bats were used primarily in the 1880s and 1890s.

Primarily, yes...Kevin is correct in his assessment that the 1880s were the hey day of the professionally mfg'd and marked ring style baseball bat. That said, there are plenty of images of teams/players with bats decorated with ring patterns in the 1870s and even as far back as the 1860s.

Here are a couple of images from the 1860s and 1870s that show teams/players with various styles of ring bats...

Default 1860s/1870s Figure 8 Ball

Been a little while since I freshened up this thread even though I did add a couple of ring bats, lemon peel balls, and a great 1860s CDV throughout 2017.

This is my first pick up of 2018...

A great example of an 1860s/1870s era figure 8 style ball...the kind of example that bridges the lemon peel- fig 8 style models.

The ball features that great, small, very tight stitching and coloration expected of the time...not toned, but actually brown.

Anybody else have any new 19th C. finds to share??

Happy New Year to all,
Jon

Default 1870s Cased Tin Type

Circa 1870s cased, tintype image of a very stylish ballplayer. Likely a pitcher/hurler by the way he's depicted with ball in hand, the player has a bib front style shirt w/ what looks like an Old English "L" on the chest, patterned stockings, and high top baseball shoes.

I'm trying to find some more images of the Lowell BBC from the mid 1870s as the uniform, particularly the socks, bib, and lettering remind me some pics I've seen of them.

Anyway, I wish it photographed better as the image is much crisper than what I was able to show.

It's been a bit of a dry spell in terms of 19th C. findings, so adding this image was a bit of a big deal for me!

Happy Hunting,
Jon

Nice image on that one, Jonathan. Sorry I can't help with any id on it. Also, if you are ever so inclined, scanners take pictures of tintypes that look fine...
