Baseball had a few different editions produced during
the early-mid 20th Century. The first version was
made by the Psychic Baseball company in 1927 followed by a slightly
revised version in 1929. Both of these were packaged in a
small, nicely illustrated box that served as a board for keeping track
of the position of the base-runners by poking small wooden pegs into
the lid. Players drew cards to determine the outcome of each
at bat. This was done by playing cards for each pitch,
followed by playing another for hit determination and yet another
for baserunning . It was actually a pretty
sophisticated game for the time. Parker Brothers then bought
the rights to the game and re-issued it in 1935. This version
came in a large box with a much bigger playing board and used the
standard Parker Brothers wooden pegs found in many games of that era.
