Attractive advertising scorecard measuring 14" x 5 1/2" and folded cleanly in half loaded with star power. While Honus Wagner's image is dominant on the ad for Carl Joseph & Co. tailors of Chicago, the inset photos along the top edge also include the likes of Eddie Plank, Home Run Baker, Connie Mack, Chief Bender, Eddie Collins, Ed Walsh, Honus Wagner and other stars. The reverse, which features a full scorecard, includes Giants team members including Rube Marquard, Christy Mathewson, John McGraw and more. Well-worn with some edge wear and creasing (and a heavily pronounced center fold) the game was once scored, though the pencil has long since faded rendering it illegible. Some mild tearing is also evident at the spine, along with what is likely a salesman's stamp from P. Bertelson of Greene North Dakota. An excellent piece containing the images of multiple Hall of Famers from the Deadball Era.
