Description

Capitalizing on his immense popularity and early success, offered is a 1962 Carl Yastrzemski baseball game released by the Pressman Toy Corporation of New York City. Measuring 14-1/2" x 20", this tin baseball game comes with a miniature wooden bat and is accompanied by four plastic pegs along with a pair of plastic balls. The wooden frame is complete and intact, while the period playing field reveals minimal scratching and scuffs. The game is missing a piece that affixes the baseball bat to the playing board. A facsimile Yastrzemski signature also graces the batters box area. The game cover is moderately worn, revealing a tear on the cover and a missing corner fold. Also present is a worn tip sheet that Yastrzemski devised for the children who bought this game. On the cover, "Yaz" shines as he follows through on his patented swing in a large game photo. A preeminent piece of the heir-apparent in Boston lore to Ted Williams.
