    Description

    Circa 1900 Bellamy's Base Ball Game--Harvard vs. Yale. One of just three known examples of this important game that impresses with cast iron figural ballplayers (thirty-one in total, painted to represent a blue team and a red team), considered representative of the venerable Ivy League institutions. Over twenty dice with unique markings designate game play. The playing surface replicates a baseball stadium with holes for the various figural players to be inserted. The game's directions appear on underside of the game lid, which measures 13x19x2". Even the original dice cup and several used and unused scorecards are present. Wear to the box and contents suggest loving use but the aesthetics remain strong. A strong representation of this exceedingly rare game.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
