Would like help to find out as much as I can about year, team, players, ect.
If your up to the challange, I will add as much info as I can to help with this task, but am not going to take the time to do so if no one wants to play detective.

A friend gave me a Baseball 2 days ago that has been team auto'ed I have just started to research:

*Offical American Association
*George Trutman President ball so minor league (1936-1945)
dates from later years maybe 1945
in about a Good - Very Good shape
*Most auto hard to read but has a few that are very clear:
Park Ward
Bruno Zajar
Don Wagner
"DEACON" Adams on SS
most other just part signatures total of 18 (I think)
*The ball came from Omaha but there was no AA team in Omaha in those years. But that doent mean the ball was signed at the same year it was gotten.
PLEASE HELP I love this kind of thing and maybe some of you out there would like to help. LMK - Thanks John

Wow it was very hard - it was from 1945 but it was a Amry Baseball team in Euroupe at the time of WWII on a ball. Nobody famous but kind of cool and lots of fun with the research. Also was given anouther ball from 1949 C level mid-west league not signed just two days ago. It's in great shape and will go into my collection of baseballs.
