    1926 National League Golden Jubilee Baseball in Presentation Box. The fiftieth anniversary of the Senior Circuit was met with appropriate pomp and circumstance, with a spectacular array of baseball legends congregating at Manhattan's Hotel Astor on Groundhog's Day of 1926. Attendees found boxes such as the presented model awaiting them at their banquet tables, golden cardboard containers lined with blue velvet and holding a pair of ONL (Heydler) spheres. Just one of those baseballs is present here, affixed with miniature photographic images of the eight men who held the reins of the National League from its inception to the date of the event. The ball exhibits only light toning to suggest nearly nine decades of existence, while the box, emblazoned on the lid with the words, "Golden Jubilee, National League, Feb. 2, 1926," exhibits typical storage wear while remaining solid and complete. A fine relic from one of the most glamorous evenings of pre-war American sports history.
