Antique Baseball Memorabilia


INCREDIBLE 1884 Baseball Game

ITEM 1: The offered item is an INCREDIBLE 1884 Baseball Game. It is difficult to determine the most appealing aspect of this game. It might be the age, at 129 years old it is amazing that this game still exists. The age of 1884 is determined by the rule of getting first base on six balls, which was only in place in 1884 season. This is quite possibly the oldest baseball game to exist! It might be the condition, at 129 years old (or 10 years old) this game has remained in amazingly near perfect condition. It is complete with 49 playing cards, which is indicted on the instructions sheet (also present), and also present are the original eighteen player discs. Or perhaps it is the aesthetic appeal, the full color litho image of the batsman wearing the period cap, the belt with the sachet dangling at the side and the high top baseball shoes from when baseball was more than a game with a score. Most likely it is the combination of all three aspects and this game possesses them all. We know of only three examples of this game to exist and this is the finest example known! Price $2,000
