On July 27, 1924, the Brooklyn Robins dropped a 9-1 decision to the Cincinnati Reds at Ebbets Field in the second game of a doubleheader. The Reds offense was led by center fielder Ed Roush and first baseman Rube Bressler, both with three hits apiece. Offered here is a “Ebbets Field Official Score Card” from the game, which lasted just under two hours long. Brooklyn’s Dazzy Vance took the win by striking out nine and pitching a complete game. Measuring approximately 6" x 9", the scorecard shows an artist’s rendering of Ebbets Field sharing equal space on the cover with Reid’s Ice Cream, a local advertiser who sold ice cream on site at Ebbets Field. Inside you’ll find the facing lineups of both the Reds and Robins with each scorecard filled out accurately over nine innings. Surrounding the game’s statistical details are vintage advertisements from the period including Bayuk Cigars, G.G.G. Clothes and the Schumm & Snyder Hat Shop. Overall condition is good with the original two staples still holding the Saddle Stitched booklet together. Original price: five cents.
