About the Player

John J. McGraw says “A famous pitcher with whom we had great difficulty at first was Rube Marquard. Apparently he had everything. In the American Association he was almost unbeatable. It was on that record that we paid $11,000 for him. I still think that the immense amount of publicity following that deal in which Rube got the sobriquet of the “Eleven thousand dollar beauty” interfered a lot with his progress. I don’t mean to say that Marquard was swell-headed. He was anything but that. It was nervousness over living up to a great reputation that seemed to upset him.”

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.

27 puzzles of each number have been produced.
