Many children growing up have known the wonders of the pink rubber "Spaldeen" ball and the A.G. Spalding Company which has continued to make equipment for various sports for nearly a century and a half. What is not as well known is that they were once the leading manufacturer of baseball bats. This is the top to a 1920’s bat rack used in sporting goods stores to advertise the Spalding baseball product. The double-sided circular metal sign itself measures about 15" in diameter, and has some bends, chipping, and missing pieces of the graphics but yet, over 90% is still intact on both sides. Both sides have the same image, a side view of a baseball with "SPALDING" in the middle and “TRADE" and "MARK" above and below. The perimeter says "A.G SPALDING & BROS., MADE IN USA" and the sign includes the post made to be attached to a bat rack.
