Paul Dickson is doing a revised BASEBALL DICTIONARY and I have to send
stuff. On page 424, it's stated that "1st 1884. First 'World's Championship
Series' held in New York, according to research conducted by the National
Baseball Library. Edward J. Nichols finds the term World Series in the 1887
_Spalding Official Base Ball Guide_."
I found this today in the New York Sun, 21 June 1871:
CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD.
