National American Base Ball Game Cards Overview
This game is believed to have been produced in the early part of the 1900s. One clue to its production date is that it utilized the same box as the 1913 Nap Lajoie game cards did. This set was likely produced in or around 1913.
The cards had a picture of a generic batter on the front and the backs had actions printed on them. Players would use the cards to dictate play and play a simulated game of baseball using them.
Like many other sets in the early 1900s, the game did not include a formal board and the cards were distributed in smaller boxes with only the cards, instructions, and scoring sheets.
