Apr 22, 2016

Two items have crossed the $300,000 mark heading into the final hours of bidding in SCP Auctions’ Spring Premier catalog. The groundbreaking and much publicized 1857 “Laws of Base Ball” documents soared to $379,757 on Friday. Originally purchased at auction years ago, the documents have since been discovered to be in the handwriting of Daniel Lucius “Doc” Adams, who was then serving as President of the New York Knickerbockers Base Ball Club. Adams drafted the manuscript for presentation at the historic Base Ball Convention of 1857 in New York City.
