    1930's Sheehan's Professional Base-Ball Game. The Sheehan Game Company was headquartered in Lakewood, Ohio, so it's no surprise that the Cincinnati Reds are the team featured in the eye-popping graphics of this rare mechanical game. The pitcher and batter position themselves at opposite ends of the game, with the former directing the ball up one of three corridors which the batter tries to guess in order to record a hit. Construction is wood and colored paper, the latter exhibiting some water damage and chipping but the overall aesthetics remain very strong. Dimensions are 15x22x8" when the scoreboard is connected at top end of the game. Also here is the original instructions, affixed to the pouch containing the various game pieces. One of the more unique models from the famous Cooper Collection. The only known specimen.
