    Description

    1931 Fonseca Base-Ball At Home Card Game. Shrouded in mystery, this only known example of this game lacks any instruction page or other clues that might shed light upon its derivation. Thirty-six cards are here in total, divided among six variations: 1 Base Hit, 2 Base Hit, 3 Base Hit, Home Run, Base on Balls and Strike Out. Each style features a different ballplayer in Major League uniform though otherwise unidentified. "Copyrighted 1931" appears under the image on each. The cards average VG-EX and their sleeve is somewhat tattered and tape-repaired but complete. Quite possibly a proof set that never made it to production, this is a game that will tempt trading card collectors as well for its intense rarity.

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am regarding the sale of my hockey jersey. You were great to work with, you answered all my phone calls and e-mails in a prompt manner, and you did a great job marketing the jersey.
