The Dr. Mark W. Cooper Collection of Vintage Baseball Games

Heritage is pleased and honored to present the undisputed finest compilation of vintage baseball-themed board games extant to the collecting community. Painstakingly assembled by leading hobby expert Dr. Mark Cooper, this collection of over 250 games spans a full century (1860's to 1960's). It includes some of the rarest and most well-preserved examples known to exist. Cooper literally wrote the book on this challenging subgenre of vintage baseball collecting with his definitive hardcover guide Baseball Games: Home Versions of the National Pastime. A full chapter in Stephen Wong's Smithsonian Baseball: Inside the World's Finest Private Collections added further luster and notoriety to this unique assemblage, helping to establish this as one of the most noteworthy private collections ever to be made available for private sale.

The collection is likewise cataloged by Cooper himself in the 1995 hardcover volume Baseball Games: Home Versions of the National Pastime, the definitive text for this unique collecting subgenre. It's unquestionably one of the most famous private sporting collections ever made available for public sale. Its historical significance as it relates to our National Pastime is unique in its presentation. Interested parties are encouraged to contact Chris Ivy to discuss the details of the collection, and to receive our full brochure featuring the highlights and details of this offering.

Please send me additional information about this collection.
