Auction has ended.
Note some history: This baseball was acquired directly from the Cowen family in the early 1990s. During that time, collectors were coming together to buy some of Cowan's memorabilia to assist in covering some of his pending medical bills.
Cowan "Bubba" Hyde (April 10, 1909 – November 20, 2003) was an American professional outfielder who played mostly in the Negro League from the 1920s to the 1950s. In his baseball career, Hyde played with the Memphis Red Sox, Birmingham Black Barons, Indianapolis Athletics, and the Cincinnati Tigers, as well as various teams from other leagues. An exceptional base stealer and above-average contact hitter, albeit with a low walk-ratio, Hyde participated in two East-West All-Star Games. Hyde concluded his time in baseball with the Chicago American Giants in 1951 and four years in the Mandak League, where, despite being in his mid-forties, Hyde hit well above .300. Setting in St. Louis, Missouri, he worked for the General Cable company before retiring in the mid-1980s. He was among the first players inducted into the Negro League Wall of Fame and Hyde had his uniform displayed in the Negro League Baseball Museum. (WIKIPEDIA).
