    1887 Our National Ball Game. "A Delightful Entertainment for Old & Young," promises the text the forms the grandstand behind home plate of this masterpiece of 19th century game design. All we have here is the original playing board, but the dice and playing pieces would be easily replaced if desired. Rules are printed in the corner. A few scattered areas of staining and thin abrasions are noted, but do little to derail the otherwise splendid graphics. Printed by E.I. Hoag and distributed by McGill and Delany, Philadelphia. Framed to dimensions of 22.5x22.5". This is considered one of the first dice games using various combinations to determine the course of play.
