Outstanding early official scorebook for the 1891 Brooklyn Grooms, managed by Hall of Famer John Ward.  The scorebook measures approximately 4 7/8" x 6 1/2", and is 32 pages long, the interior pages containing advertisements and individual player images with biographical information.  The cover is in poor condition, clearly, with staining and tearing, and has split into two at the spine, which has become detached from the rest of the publication.  The interior pages have fared somewhat better, perhaps VG condition but with outstanding eye appeal.  Reminiscent of today's yearbooks, a digest-sized guide to the 1891 Grooms, packed with player photos and information.
