Boston Daily Bee, Sept. 8, 1853:

"Ball Game--The Aurora Ball Club and the Olympic Club will play best 3 in 5 games at Base Ball, on Tremont Street mall, on Friday morning next, at 1/2 past 5 o'clock, for ten boxes best Havana cigars. The public are invited to be present. Sufficient force will be in attendance to prevent confusion."

The Boston Herald, Sept. 7, 1853 ran the same notice.

The Bee, Sept. 10, 1853 reports that the Olympic won "45 to 35 rounds in three successive games" "witnessed by a great concourse of spectators." The cigar wager was promptly paid by the losers.

This is probably a MA rules game. "Tremont St. mall" is alternate name for the Boston Commons.
