“KANSAS CITY – Cleaning the Bingham-Waggoner Estate in Independence last summer, volunteers made a rare find in a cluttered third-floor bedroom: an 1893 Zimmer’s Base Ball Game.
The board game, which features a full-color board and portraits of 18 star players, is one of only about 10 known copies in the world. A copy of the game sold for $30,000 in the 1990s and the Bingham-Waggoner copy could be worth more since it’s still in good shape, has the original box top and two original game balls that may be the only ones still in existence.”
