Extremely attractive wooden parlor game which folds into a hinged box measuring 13" x 11" x 2 1/2".  When opened, the box features colorful artwork picturing a baseball field ("Bostons vs. Chicagos" is printed on the outfield fence).  The upper lid includes three wooden "chutes" for a marble, which is missing.  The game does exhibit age-related wear, some abrasion and scratching to the wood, with some loose edges.  None of the wear detracts from its exceptional appearance.  A very scarce early baseball-themed parlor game.
