1914 Championship Base Ball Parlor Board Game
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $460.00
The colorful box for the Championship Base Ball Parlor Game features a stadium illustration of a game in progress. The cover assures us that the game is "Played the Same as the Great National Out-Door Game in Every Detail." This may be a slight exaggeration. The simple game is played with dice and circular cardboard game pieces, placed on a folding game board. The original detailed game instructions and a premium photo (7" x 11") of the "Miracle Braves," which were originally issued with the game, are also included (Vg, with some minor restoration). The game box shows wear, with some tears and a small section missing from the side aprons, but the box top, which provides the game's considerable display value, is in Excellent condition. Despite flaws, this is a very attractive example of this very scarce ideal-for-display early table top baseball game. The box measures 9.5" x 22" x 2." Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $460.00
