    Description

    1914 Jordan's Major League Base Ball Game. The included game instructions tell the tale: "The Game is Operated as Follows: Press the pitcher's arm back so that it is caught by the releasing device attached to the mechanism; press the bat back so that it is caught by the releasing device attached; then place the ball in the pitcher's hand. The ball is thrown and batted by pressing outward on the releasing levers which are attached to the board. One leaver controls the pitcher, the other the batter." Die-cut wooden fielders are spread about the playing surface, which is enclosed by included "outfield fences," and whether or not the fielders are struck by the batted ball will determine the play. As our catalog imagery will indicate, a small portion of the original packaging survives as well. This is believed to be the only surviving example of this thrilling Dead Ball Era mechanical game.
