The impressive graphics on the cover and game board of Christy Mathewson's "Big Six" Indoor Baseball game makes it a favorite among collectors. Offered is a beautifully framed display, composed of the "Big Six" game box top and the magnificent interior game board. The elaborately designed game board features generic illustrations of ballplayers in the field and a circular diagram listing the play options. Attached to the center of the diagram is a large spinner featuring an illustration of Mathewson at one end that reads "Spin the Pitcher." When the spinner is spun, Mathewson points to the play options. The box cover is beautifully framed alongside the game board. The box cover measures 15.25 x 21 inches, and the game board measures 16 x 22.25 inches. The game board is in Excellent condition. The box cover (which is usually found in very damaged condition) is one of the finest we have ever seen, and though under the closest inspection naturally has a few minor imperfections, displays as Excellent. Framed to total dimensions of 39 x 28.5 inches. The substantial size/weight of this item requires that there will be a shipping charge for this lot (which will vary depending upon where it is being shipped). The shipping charge will be billed separately from the auction invoice. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+.
