Incised "RBS/09" on the back, each measures 19" high. These are desirable prizes in the antique world and lesser sets have long been sought after by folk art collectors selling for $15-to-20K. Includes the connector pieces that the players stand on (2), made of cast iron and measuring 18" long. The uniforms are white, one player has a ball in his hand and the other a bat.
