An excellent copy with very slight wear and minor soiling, else very fine and extremely scarce in this condition. Spalding's Official Base Ball Guide was an annually issued baseball guide first published in 1877 by sporting goods magnate A. G. Spalding's American Sports Publishing Company. During the 19th century, Spalding and Reach's guides were the primary source of sports statistics and analysis of the prior year; they also included the rules and regulations for playing the game. Spalding and Reach fully merged by 1942 to form The Sporting News. The 1883 guide includes statistics for 1882, the first year of the American Association (AA) and the expansion of baseball from 8 to 14 teams, which includes the Baltimore Orioles, St. Louis Browns and the Philadelphia Athletics. The Cincinnati Red Stockings moved from the National League to the American Association, and won the pennant the same year. Seller Inventory # AGS005
