The Olympic Club had formed nearly 30 years earlier, and played two-old-cat and then town ball in its earlier days, converting to base ball in 1860. See Chronology entry 1831.1 and Philadelphia Town Ball for additional historical context.
Do we really only have three games for this historic clubs, which endured until 1887?

Win/Loss Records As Far As We Now Know
Warning: Users should not rely on a team's won-loss record as a reflection of its "standing" among all base ball clubs. Team schedules were not balanced, and a good record against mostly weak opponents does not signify a leading club.
