Default Baseball Scoreboard help needed

All--I saw this scoreboard at an antique show preview this evening. The board is made from plywood, and the team names slide out so they can be aligned with the appropriate teams playing on a given day. There is no room for scores. It measures @2' X 3.5'.

Since the Braves left Boston after the 1952 season this board could be as young as 1952, or possibly older. I can't tell.

The dealer will sell for $2000, but it seems a bit high to me. It would make a cool presentation piece in my man-cave, but I don't want to overpay.

Thoughts?

Cheers,
Mike

For me, that price seems a zero high (at least).

+1, agreed too. Was thinking a couple hundred tops.

Default I'd put it in the novelty category

without any attribution and it's quite small. If it's in fact a vintage item from around the 1940's - in my mind the somewhat primitive look might warrant a price tag in the 50.00 range. A 2500. ask seems absurd and not even an implausible story to go with it! Of course most things look good in a man cave except ballet slippers and dolls unless there's a young partially clad dancer in the equation - just a matter of the bottom line.

no guarantees whether written or implied....

I sold a mechanical gambling scoreboard a couple of years ago that was very colorful for $600 at Hunts

I would price this a about $350 at most, with a good story

This looks something like I remember seeing as a kid in a Philly bar. Only it was side by side. It is definitely from the Philly area.
I would imagine many bars had them, but since I was 6 or 7, I can't confirm. And EVERYTHING in that bar was from the 40's or earlier!

Thank you for the responses, and I agree that the price is extremely high by at least a zero. The dealer did say it "probably" came from a bar, and that seems plausible, possibly Philly, Jim. Even at $200 it would be a stretch since it looks as though someone manufactured it by hand with not so sophisticated materials, certainly nothing like Jim Murphy's scoreboard.

That being said, now I need to look for silk ballet slippers for the man-cave!

Cheers,
Mike

At first when I read the replies I couldn't understand why everyone thought the price was so absurd. Then I realized I had initially read the price as being two hundred, not two thousand. Even at two hundred, I would have some angst about buying it.
