1922 Home Base Ball Game Cards Overview

Produced by the Home Base Ball Corporation in 1922, this game relied on some celebrity endorsements to help make it a hit. As stated on the box, the game was endorsed by Hall of Famer John McGraw, Buck Herzog, and several other players.

The 9″ x 11″ box included a built-in playing surface. A deck of cards was included, which was how the game was played. They included actions printed onto them so that a baseball game could be simulated.

The card backs featured a generic baseball batter with a red background. Interestingly, the cards looked strikingly familiar to the image of Babe Ruth from the 1933 C.A. Briggs set. That designer of that set quite possibly used this image to create their likeness of Ruth since the two pictures look incredibly similar.
