The 1898 base ball schedule is documented with this impressive Washington Post 96-page booklet. Measuring 2-1/2 x 4-1/2", the contests on pages 6-8 are neatly inscribed in vintage pencil with the runs, hits and errors ledger along with pitchers (covering seven days of games). The textured mustard yellow cover has retained bold, black typeface with moderate perimeter wear. The staple binding is tightly attached to the inner pages and the overall publication presents VG with light soiling and a torn left corner of the reverse cover. The pages are all intact and the print is completely legible; the cover reads “The Washington Post Base Ball Schedule of the National League and American Association of Professional Base Ball Clubs Season 1898; Price- 10 cents.”
