    Circa 1860 Baltimore Pastime Team Silk Ribbon. From the same source that provided this auction with a rare Brooklyn Excelsior ribbon comes this exciting relic from the Baltimore Pastime B.B.C. Regular Heritage bidders will recall our April 2011 offering of a trophy baseball featured on the PBS program "Antiques Roadshow" which memorialized a contest between this club and the Brooklyn Atlantics, dated June 23, 1859. Ribbons such as this were traded between opposing players as a friendly gesture of camaraderie. The 1x7.5" silk relic exhibits some staining and minimal tattering at the ends, but our catalog imagery should indicate that the aesthetics of this exciting survivor of baseball's infancy remain strong.
