Great baseball game reports from the Civil War...



Item # 672980

June 14, 1862

WILKES' SPIRIT OF THE TIMES, New York, June 14, 1862  A nice sporting-themed newspaper which has on page 3 nearly 1 1/2 columns taken up with: "Base Ball" reports, including much on the: "Grand Matches Between Philadelphia Nines and Nines of Newark, New York, and Brooklyn" Great detail here including the box scores for the 4 games. Also: "Base Ball in Detroit".
A bit uncommon to find detailed baseball reports from the midst of the Civil War.
Sixteen pages, very nice condition.
