When did spalding make baseballs for MLB?

Some time around 1876, Albert G. Spalding and his brother, J. Walter Spalding, obtained the right to produce the official National League baseball, which they would continue to produce for the next 100 years.The American League, formally the American League of Professional Baseball Clubs combined with the National league in 1901 to form Major League baseball. Alfred James Reach, owner of The Reach sporting Goods company, sold his company to Spalding in 1889. Spalding continued to use the Reach label to produced American League baseballs beginning in 1901.NOTE: 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 leagues started using only red stitching.So basically Spalding was producing Major league baseball for about 100 years until Rawlings took over around 1970, and Rawlings have been making major league baseballs ever since. I will leave a link below to a price guide for Official Major League baseballs. It is broken down by League and league presidents, along with pictures where you can see the Spalding, Reach, and Rawlings trademarks. I will be adding more pictures soon -Steven KeyMan
