1922 Christy Mathewson "Big Six" Game

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $711.00

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 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. Attached directly to the board at the center of this circle is a large cardboard spinner reading "Spin the Pitcher" with an image of Mathewson in a pitching pose at one end; when spun, Mathewson points to the play options. The box cover (16.25 x 22.25 inches) displays a few light stains (mainly in the upper right corner) and small surface blemishes which do not significantly detract from its overall Excellent appearance. The game board (16 x 22.25 inches) displays a number of tiny pinholes, as expected (pins were used to represent the players and also marked the outs, strikes, ball, and runs), and is otherwise in Excellent to Mint condition. Also included is a portion of the game's original box, which is in Fair condition (all of the four side flaps are detached and torn). Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000.
SOLD FOR $711.00
