Picked up this baseball along with six others from a client that I'm Helping Relocate. I knew the ball looked special when I pick it up. The Continental League of Professional Baseball Clubs (known as the Continental League or CL) was a proposed third major league for baseball in the United States and Canada, announced in 1959 and scheduled to begin play in the 1961 season. Unlike predecessor competitors such as the Players League and the Federal League, it sought membership within organized baseball's existing organization and acceptance within Major League Baseball. The league disbanded in August 1960 without playing a single game, but it helped to accelerate the expansion of Major League Baseball.
The Continental League was the last serious attempt to create a third major league consisting of new clubs.

    How could it be a game used ball for a league that never made if past concept and never played any games?

    I think you've gotten two "Continental Leagues" mixed.

    There was a Continental League (SW Independent minor League baseball without any MLB affiliations). It existed from 2007- 2010.
