Beautiful handheld celluloid scorer produced by the New York American, enabling detailed tracking of a game score with runs, hits and errors for both teams, plus the number of outs and inning.  In excellent condition with mild use-related soiling, all eight dials remain functional.  The front of the piece labels itself the "Babe Ruth Baseball Scorer," while the reverse advertises "The Pink," which was likely a pink-tinted edition of the paper produced each evening.
