Baseball Advertising Scrip

Baseball advertising scrip, like most coins and banknotes within the numismatic realm, is best organized and collected by year, although there are plenty of other ways in which they can be sliced and diced by specialists.

Today, only issues from 1887, 1888, 1889, and 1893 are accounted for, spread over three big-city professional baseball teams: the Chicago White Stockings (1887-1889), the Detroit Wolverines (1887-1888), and the St. Louis Browns (1887-1888).
