About the Player

Ty Cobb on Ty Cobb: "Many fans have asked me why I always swing three bats. Originally it was my intention to make the one bat feel lighter when I went to the plate, and this practice has developed the muscles of my shoulders and back wonderfully, because the three sticks weigh approximately one hundred and twenty ounces. But I have had great luck in hitting while swinging three bats, and I would not give it up now at any price. Aside from the superstition of it, I believe the juggling of three bats, while waiting for my turn, has done me a lot of good, since it has developed me from a rather slight build to a player who is very strong in the back and arms, which strength enables me to drive the ball.”

About the Series

There have been baseball themed games almost as long as the game of baseball has been around. The first baseball parlour game, for example, was advertised in the December, 1866 installment of Leslie Magazine—just a year after Lincoln's assassination! Hundreds of games since that date have delighted fans. However, never to our knowledge has anyone married baseball stars with the popular hand puzzles that were so popular from about 1890 to 1965—until now. We think that you'll spend more quality time with these games than much of the rest of your collection. 2.5" diameter, two sided, glass both sides.  Note: puzzles #5 Alexander, 6 Walsh, 20 Ewing, 25 Tinker and 27 Wilson were not issued due to a manufacturing error.

27 puzzles of each number have been produced.
