Psychic Baseball had a few
different editions produced during the early-mid 20th Century. The
first version was made by the Psychic Baseball company in 1927 followed
by a slightly revised version in 1929. Both of these were packaged in a
small, nicely illustrated box that served as a board for keeping track
of the position of the base-runners by poking small wooden pegs into
the lid. Players drew cards to determine the outcome of each at bat.
This was done by playing cards for each pitch, followed by playing
another for hit determination and yet another for baserunning . It was
actually a pretty sophisticated game for the time. Parker Brothers then
bought the rights to the game and re-issued it in 1935. This version
came in a large box with a much bigger playing board and used the
standard Parker Brothers wooden pegs found in many games of that era.
