Posted By: <b>Jason Mishelow</b><p>one of my favorites items is actually found in an 1834 book all about farming- yes farming<br />Buried deep in the publishers ads is a 1 page ad for Robin Carver's Book of Sports. The ad which is mentioned in both Henderson Ball Bat and Bishop and Blocks Baseball before We Knew it feautres the famous Baseball on boston commons woodcut- it sort of the first ad about baseball <br /><br />Anyone have any thoughts on value <br /><br />Thanks <br />Jason
