It seems dirt is everywhere you look if you’re a baseball collector shopping the game-used sections of websites and MLB Auctions.
You can buy game-used baseballs that were a pitch in the dirt. You can buy dirt holiday ornaments and dirt keychains. You can buy simple vials of dirt with labels noting the stadium. You can buy dirt coasters. You can buy framed game-used displays that include a dirt capsule along with other pieces. You can buy simpler (and cheaper) no-frills items that showcase dirt. The best pieces, of course, are dirt-covered game-used uniforms.
But that’s not all — at least if you’re a fan of two teams. It’s time for something really different there.
