With one of the teams set to break a lengthy championship drought, interest in World Series-related memorabilia has been high, especially in Chicago and Cleveland and the baseballs are certainly part of it.
The stampings on the ball are in gold. MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred’s facsimile signature is in the middle, as is the usual custom on any official Rawlings baseball.
Both baseballs are made to the exact specifications of what you see on the field. They weigh five ounces and have 108 stitches. The cover is made of full-grain leather.
Programs and baseballs are two of the least expensive World Series items you can own. The programs are available for $15 each while baseballs can be had for $20-$30. Many collectors and fans, of course, will hope to add autographs to them later on. Or, you can pre-order baseballs with signatures from some of the star players on both teams who have autograph contracts with major memorabilia companies.
