Circa 1930 A.J. Reach Co. Eagle Mesh Golf Ball

This mesh pattern golf ball from circa 1930 contains legible green stamps on each pole "REACH" and "EAGLE." Condition is fair to good, with expected wear from quickly approaching 100 years since production and a strike mark. This ball was found in the 1930 sports equipment book 'Belknap Hardware & Manufacturing Co.,' along with many others of the time. The company's namesake Alfred 'A.J.' Reach was born in 1840 to a father that was a professional Cricket player. The family moved to Brooklyn, where A.J. Reach grew his passion for the game of baseball, one of the first to play professionally. After his playing days ceased he opened up a sporting goods store and eventually became the owner and president of the Philadelphia Phillies. Reach then sold his company to Spalding in the beginning of the 1920's, where much of the A.J. Reach golf clubs and balls were produced.
