Out of stock
The first game of the USA leg took place between the English and the XXII of the USA at the Elysian Fields, Hoboken, NJ on October 3rd, 4th and 5th of 1859. This match is preserved for posterity thanks to the images published on October 15, 1859, in the Harper’s Weekly. The images portray two different ball games being played on the same day at the Elysian Fields in Hoboken, New Jersey. An American cricket team is shown playing the British one on the left hand side. A baseball game is in progress on the same ground on the right hand side
