Vintage Matted Ad for the 1889 E.R. Williams Indoor Base Ball Game.

Lot 318. Vintage Matted Ad for the 1889 E.R. Williams Indoor Base Ball Game. The game was played with 52 playing cards, 19 of which featured two players per card. Some of the notable players include Anson, Clarkson, Comiskey, Ewing, Galvin, Keefe and Ward. This black and white ad, apparently from a magazine, appears with the heading “Toys and Games.” An illustration with a batter, catcher, pitcher, first baseman and umpire is followed by “Baseball at Home - Williams’ Popular Indoor Game.” The game is promoted as “Interesting, Exciting, Scientific, Speculative - For Sale Everywhere Price $1”. An artist’s rendering of Buck Ewing is shown inside a baseball diamond with text noting that the game is “Endorsed by Buck Ewing and All Experts.” This 6 ¼” x 5” ad, matted to 8” x 10”, is in nice ex condition and displays beautifully. Winning Bid $20.
