Attractive scorecard for a June 23, 1888 game between the Philadelphia Athletics and Brooklyn Bridegrooms of the American Association, a 4-3 Brooklyn win.  The game has been scored carefully in pencil, dated on the interior pages.  The scorecard is loaded with players familiar to 19th Century and deadball era collectors, including Brooklyn's George Pinkney, Darby O'Brien, Bob Caruthers, Dave Foutz, Germany Smith, Bill McClellan, Shorty Radford, Bill Holbert, Bob Clark, and Mickey Hughes.  The Philadelphia lineup card includes Tom Poorman, Harry Stovey, Denny Lyons, Henry Larkin, Curt Welch, Lou Bierbauer, Bill Gleason, George Townsend, Tom Gunning, Gus Wehing and Mike Mattimore.  The front features a colorful illustration familiar among collectors of 19th Century scorecards.  The spine is heavily worn to the point of having become separated, overall eye appeal is strong for the era, POOR condition in general.
