Unique Baseball Patch Find

A few days ago I received a package in the mail from an older family member.  Inside was an old Dutch Masters cigar box filled with old newspaper clippings and various other stuff I really didn’t know why they wanted to send me.  Near the bottom of the box I discovered a really old Irving Trust Co. baseball patch.  Irving Trust Co. merged a long time ago with The Bank of New York, and I haven’t been able to find anything on this baseball patch.  On eBay, I see a lot of older baseball patches but nothing quite like this.  I know there are many vintage baseball patch collectors and people that collect old bank memorabilia.  I wonder if this thing has any value?  I might give it a try on eBay and see what happens.

Lets just hope someone doesn’t buy it to make fake patch cards 🙂
