On July 23, 1935, the New York Yankees hosted a doubleheader with the Detroit Tigers. The Yankes took the first game, 7-5, behind the clutch hitting of Lou Gehrig, who went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer. New York’s Johnny Allen picked up the win with five strikeouts. This lot features an official “Yankee Stadium Score Card” from that game with completed statistics on the inside pages covering each at-bat for both teams. Period advertisements from that era blanket the scorecard as Regal Shoes and Between the Acts Little Cigars take center stage on the front cover, while Sinclair Motor Oil had some fun with the back cover by pitting Tyrannosaurus Rex against Triceratops in “The World Series … 80 Million Years Ago.” Due to time and friction, the cover of the scorecard has become separated from the inside pages
