Description: Scarce Monarch Sporting Goods Co. "Boys Delight" base ball box c. 1870-80. Incredibly rare fiberboard box that once held one dozen baseballs, retains both bottom and lid with metal corner joints intact. End panel features an applied paper label with company name, ball type, and a beautiful color litho. game scene. This is the first intact example that we've encountered and due to obvious fragility and age will most likely be the only copy we'll handle. Stunning: EX-MT
