How many inches of stitching make up the 108 double stitches or 216 stitches on a baseball?

The two figure-8 coverings are stapled to the wound ball, then they are hand-sewn together using 88 inches of waxed red thread. There are 108 double stitches (216) in the sewing process, with the first and last completely hidden. An average of 13 to 14 minutes is required to hand-sew a baseball. In the past Baseball Stitching clamps were used to secure the baseball during the process of sewing on the cover by hand. In the early days the wooden clamps were made by locale woodworkers or carpenters. The baseballs were both sewn at the factories or at home, the work done mostly by women. Below I will leavea link to a vintage baseball stitching clamp that was used at the Draper-Maynard factory.

Where can a used baseball with red and black stitching a friend said was from 1902 be analyzed?

American League baseballs with the Reach Trademark had Red & Blue stitching, and the National League Spalding Trademark baseballs had Black & Red stitching up until about 1934/35 when in both league started using only red stitching. If you have an official baseball you need to "analyze" the stamping on the baseball. You can the narrow down the era the baseball was made by the name of the league President that appears on the ball. Trademarks could also aid in dating the ball. See Related Links below for a Baseball dating guide. If the baseball does not have any markings then it will be difficult to date. The baseball you have has red, and black stitching as the national league baseballs did, and will date the baseball pre-1935. Non-Official balls might have been made after 1935 as well. Without any markings on the baseball it will have a lower collectors value.

What machines are used to make baseballs?

The present day ball stitching machines, are used as a thread tightening device. The stitching thread control device tightly clamps the stitching thread for manufacturing the finished baseball so that the worker only needs to use minimum force to pull and set the stitches on balls. The operation of this device is convenient for workers. In the past Baseball Stitching clamps were used. This device was used to secure the baseball during the process of sewing on the cover by hand. In the early days the clamps were made of wood by locale woodworkers or carpenters, and later made of metal. The baseballs were both sewn at the factories or at home, the work done mostly by women. Two pieces of figure-eight-shaped cowhide is dampened to permit pliability and placed around a string wound core, then placed in the stitching clamp. The covers are stapled together to hold in place for stitching. The baseball is then hand-stitched together with 216 raised stitches. It takes about 13-14 minutes to hand sew a baseball.
