I could have sworn that they had black/yellow stitched balls in '94 or maybe they were just ones that were sold as memorbilia.

That is cool. I never seen something like that. Neat idea they need to that more often.

They make special All-Star balls every year. I have a 1993 All-Star ball with orange and black stiches when the game was in Baltimore.

Yeah I have a ball from the 2004 All Star Game. The Stitching is Tan and Brick.

I believe the colored stitchings was something Bud Selig started when he became commissioner.

Is that your personal collection, Tazz? I make the guess based on the fact that you hosted the pics, but I think that's pretty sweet if it is. It's definitely something unique to have, that's for sure.

Those are just images I found using google and ebay, but I do have the four from 2002 and on. I hosted the pics to be kind to their bandwidth.

Is the stitching and printing normally random on game balls like it is on those balls?

I think it's funny that I have been watching the all star game all these years and never knew that they had oddly stitched baseballs. I would have been outraged years ago, instead of just getting around to it now. Isn't it a little... sketchy... given that the games actually have a bearing on something nowi (home field in the WS) to use anything OTHER than the regular league game ball?

If you're going to say that about the ASG balls, then you should say the same about the other special balls, including the "Opening Series" balls, "World Series" balls, "Barry Bonds" balls.
