I believe the ‘baseball in a display case’ that I spotted in a BlueStacks App Player crash while playing TSTO a few days ago (and posted about here). has been identified by deleuzion over at Flickr. Thanks!! I’ve been wondering about this for days 🙂
It’s a baseball made from Secretariat and it was an item for sale at the sports collectables store The Spend Zone from the episode ‘You Only Move Twice‘ (1996)
After more than a week with this image bouncing around in my head, I now vaguely remember the ‘memorabilia thing’ being discussed briefly on the old ‘Tips’ blog (or maybe some other site) ages ago. Plus after reviewing my BlueStacks crash that yielded this image; it is grouped with ‘game icons’ not buildings or decorations, I agree with Chris J & Matt – this could just be an ‘artifact’ of an event that never happened.
Or has yet to happen
Sorry Chris J, completely didn’t see your comment :p
Is it possible the baseball is one of these “Memorabilia ” items that have been floating around the ether for a while? It seems too small and useless to be a decoration.
I’m so glad you got an answer to this. I haven’t been able to get it out of my mind since you first mentioned it.
I can’t help thinking about the memorabilia idea that never came out. Maybe the baseball was the intended icon for it?
