Packing considerable star power, this 1915 advertising scorecard is highlighted, of course, by a photo of rookie Babe Ruth, who is included among the American League champion Boston Red Sox.  Hall of Fame teammates Harry Hooper, Tris Speaker and Herb Pennock are also pictured on the scorecard side of this 14" x 5 1/2" display-worthy piece.  On the reverse, the members of the National League champion Phillies are featured, including Hall of Famers Dave Bancroft and Grover Cleveland Alexander.  A large, full-body image of Walter Johnson appears on the right-side of that National League panel.  The detail, as well as the information contained in such a small space, is impressive.  Unscored, the piece exhibits light moisture staining at the top edge, along with mild toning and corner wear.  Unfolded, the piece displays in VG+ condition save for the light staining at the top.
