NOTES:
 
   The patent No. 2,242,455 on this Parvey MFG Co., Big League baseball is from 1941 filed by Fedrick deBeer of J. deBeer & Son. The patent is for a method of manufacturing a ball at a cheaper cost as compared with the sewed leather-covered baseball, taking less time to make, and which will maintain its form and resiliency when subjected to the rough usage. The ball was manufactured the same as with the conventional method, but after the winding of yarn around the core, under pressure a mixture of latex and thickener would form an outer surface which would serve as the cover.

 The outer latex cover is molded to simulate the appearance of leather. A depression is made giving the appearance of a baseball seam then the latex material is painted or inked onto the ball with a figure-eight line of short angular marks suggestive of stitching. A problem with the J. deBeer & son method was the lines of the underlying yarn winding were clearly visible because of the thin pre-formed outer skin. The outer layer of latex separate from the inner layer tends to stiffen and become fragile. Then in a short time when the ball is batted the pre-formed skin breaks and peels off. The stitch simulating ridge being an additive formation is quickly worn off in use.

 In 1953 H. Harwood & Sons was granted a patent, 2645487, that Improved on this method by simply making the latex coating thicker and in one layer. The J. deBeer & Son, Anchor Brand Softball below with the patent no. 2242455 can be dated to 1955 or later. The Anchor Brand logo features the Racol symbol AKA, Registered Trademark circled (R), which was first used in 1947. J. deBeer & son used "Trade Mark Reg" on their logos up until 1954, and added the Registered Trademark circled (R) in 1955.
