Old Match Box with Baseball Player at Bat

Old Match Box with Baseball Player at Bat

This is a small cardboard box for vintage Ohio Blue Tip matches. On the top of the sleeve is the image of a baseball player with his bat back, ready to take a swing. There are no identifying marks that I can see on the gray uniform but it has blue trim and the cap is blue. I wonder if these came in a series like baseball cards? Along the edge is the copyright date of 1955 by the Ohio Match Company. Inside the inner box are some original stick matches with the blue tips and along both edges of the box are the striking strips.

It measures about 2 ¼" by 1 ½" by ½" and is in nice condition with light edge and corner wear and minor staining. The striking strip is clean however lightly creased.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
