Extremely rare board game in original box. Produced by Parker Bros. during its earliest years as a game manufacturer, the game was played by rolling two die, with the number combination corresponding to a particular action on the "field." The cover of the box features a beautiful generic baseball illustration and the game board depicts a game in progress. Both the box and game board have outstanding graphics. We do not recall seeing this game before. Complete with game board, dice and wooden markers. The box is in Very Good condition overall including a few areas of light discoloration and minor tears to the fragile paper wraps. The interior game board has been protected from all elements including light and is in Excellent to Mint condition. This is a tremendous rarity with extraordinary display value. Reserve $400. Estimate $600/$800. SOLD FOR $812.00
