The 1914 B18 Baseball Blankets set consists of 90 unnumbered cloth squares, each of which contain a color variation. The vintage baseball blankets are 5¼” squares that were originally issued as flannel inserts with different cigarette brands. They are comprised of a felt-like material and get the name blankets due to the fact that many people fashioned the squares into quilts or blankets. The "Red Base Path" Variations are nearly impossible to find, are very expensive due to their scarcity, and there are 17 known blankets of this variation.
