    Circa 1900 Honus Wagner Base Ball Puzzle. "The National Game," announces the sleeve to this intriguing metal puzzle game, "The Greatest Puzzle of the Age--Honus Wagner Base Ball Puzzle." Black and red pieces are attached to a metal track, with the object to categorize by color. The apparently brass construction shows wear and a degree of expected oxidation but still essentially functions as intended. The game is housed in a card stock sleeve that bears a period photographic image of the Old Dutchman on reverse. Sleeve shows some wear as evident in our catalog imagery, with tape repairs at interior that are not apparent upon display. The only example known.
