    Description

    1913 Major League Indoor Base Ball Game. Among the finest surviving examples of the Dead Ball Era's most coveted baseball board game, this high-grade relic ranks near the top of this endangered species. Look at those cover graphics! That's right, it's the photographic mastery of Carl Horner, the era's premier baseball lensman whose work populates the most collectible tobacco and candy card sets of the day. That's the famous multi-million dollar Honus Wagner T206 image third from left on the bottom row. Every top Hall of Famer is here--Baker, Cobb, Lajoie, Walsh, Speaker, Chase, Johnson, Wallace, Mathewson, Chance, Bresnahan--with brightly colored artwork surrounding upon the hinged wooden lid. The thrills only continue inside, where we encounter the "playing field" and spinner, and (unbelievably!) the original playing pamphlet and full contingent of cardboard roster names and wooden playing pieces. Light edge wear and one loose hinge is all that we can report in terms of condition flaws to the exterior, with the interior showing only minor wear from use to the playing surface. Closed box is 13.5x19.5x2.5" in dimension. An absolute marvel worthy of a place of honor in the finest of private collections.
