Baseball – 1800 Series

Baseball – 1800’s

The 1800’s:  We have been baseball fans for over 60 years and like many of you have  played, watched, read, researched, listened, and discussed … a mind boggling amount of baseball.   So we think we can say without reservation that there is no better view of baseball history than these 36 box score cards.  These box score game cards represent the foundation of baseball history.  They take you on a journey from baseball’s primitive beginning (1845) …  when on a lazy fall day someone decided to keep the score of a game of ball, to the end of the 19th Century when baseball was the way of life for most Americans.
Take a second and think about that era in American history. Baseball was not only a uniting force in the growth and fiber of our country with events like the Civil War, Industrial Revolution, Wild West occurring but a driving force as well.
Enjoy viewing the cards!

Important Note: These 1800’s box score game cards are part of our original box score set, a rare collectible.  And, since the set was published in 1992 a few additional facts have surfaced.  One such example: It had always been believed that ‘Old Hoss’ Radbourn had 60 wins in the 1884 season.  However, after publishing the set it was discovered with the explosion of information & technology that in fact ‘Old Hoss’ had only 59 wins for the ’84 season. 59, 60 …  regardless, ‘Old Hoss’ had quite a year!

1800 Historic games included: 1845, 1858, 1870, 1871, 1876 (5), 1880, 1881, 1882 (3), 1883 (4), 1884 (3), 1885, 1886 (2), 1887, 1890, 1892 (3), 1894(2), 1896, 1897 (2), 1898 & 1899.
