Back then, it wasn't really a big deal for us. You don't realize the value of a ball until it's in somebody else's hands, because you looked at it as more of sentimental value, not monetary. When I gave [the Fisk ball] away, no value was placed on it
That has the ring of truth about it, even for as recently as 1975.
That's because in 1951 and 1975 people had a far greater tendency to look forward rather than backward. You also see it, of course, in stadium architecture and the relative lack back then of ersatz renditions of what had come before.
Is this people in general, or just baseball people?
No generation ever does. Looking backwards is what old men do, not young men.
've got a pretty damn good AA collection myself, but Litwack's has to be one of the 2 or 3 best private collections in the world.
