|--|| ||A Brief History of Tabletop Baseball |
"Brief" by our long-winded standards, anyway -- but informative reading,
perhaps, for anyone new to the hobby, illustrated with dozens of photos,
and lightly seasoned with a few tips for vendors as well as collectors.
|--|| ||Jim Prentice Electric Baseball |
The story, as best as we can tell, of Jim Prentice, The Electric Game Company,
and the befuddling array of Electric Baseball versions and varieties
produced over the course of more than thirty years.
|--|| ||Baseball Game Advertising |
No, not our classifieds section -- instead, a retrospective of
print advertisements and promotional ephemera for tabletop baseball games,
toys, and practise devices of the past, featuring ads for things from
every decade since the 1880s.
|--|| ||Negro League baseball in Buffalo |
An extensive interview with Negro League star Jimmy Wilkes by the Buffalo News,
looking back on the days when the Indianapolis Clowns and a young Hank Aaron
called Buffalo's Offermann Stadium home. Also: a scrapbook of Negro League clippings
from 1952 and 1953 issues of the venerable African-American weekly, the Buffalo Criterion.
