Wow! Take a look at this vintage Baseball board game sponsored by Brooklyn Dodger announcer Red Barber. He declares that it has "All the Thrills, Excitement, and Suspense of Real Baseball." Even better is that it showcases 6 Major Leaguers who have endorsed the game on the cover: Stan Musial, Tom Heinrich, Pee Wee Reese, Casey Stengel, Roy Campanella and Carl Erskine.
Below is a pic of the contents of the game in the auction. Based upon some research I did, this game appears to be missing some key parts. It was produced by G & R Anthony Inc. in 1950. I have no idea how the game is played, but would love to learn.
Here is a closer look at the ballplayers featured on the bottom row of the board game.
