Comment

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.

Query

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.

"The Olympic Club, of this city, which was the oldest organization in this country, is now defunct, internal dissensions having led to its disbandment. It was organized as a town ball club in 1833, and adopted the game of base ball in 1860. Many of the most influential residents of the Quaker City have figured on its rolls during the last half century." The Sporting Life August 31, 1887 (h/t Richard Hershberger)
