All Star Baseball

board game

Cadaco's All Star Baseball board game is considered one of the most popular board games of the last 60 years, and the most popular baseball board game ever. In 2011, Rochesterian Ron Anderson made a video for The Strong's America at Play Play Stories video contest. Mr. Anderson spoke about how much enjoyed playing the baseball game with his neighbors during the 1940s; and he said he even plays the game sometimes as an adult, with his brother. Together they re-live the fun they had as children. This later copy of All Star Baseball is the first example of this important and fun board game for the National Museum of Play collection.
