This ball was used in Pittsburgh's victory over Detroit in Game 3 of the 1909 World Series. Interestingly, the last out in Game 3 was made by the Tigers Jim Delhanty, who lined out to Pirates left fielder Fred Clarke. Given that circumstance, there is a very good chance this ball represents the final out of Game 3. Game-used World Series balls dating from the dead ball era are practically nonexistent, making this both an exceedingly rare and important early baseball relic.The 1909 World Series remains one of the most memorable on record, as it showcased the talents of the two greatest players of the dead-ball era: Ty Cobb and Honus Wagner. At the end of the Series, Wagner emerged victorious on both counts, as his Pirates captured the Championship in seven games and his average of. 333 bested Cobb's disappointing.
The ball is moderately soiled and displays a number of small abrasions that are consistent with its game-used status. In Very Good condition overall.
