On July 25, 1926, the Pittsburgh Pirates invaded Ebbets Field to face the Brooklyn Robins. Playing before 12,000 fans, the Pirates pulled out a 3-2 victory. Two hits and two runs batted in by Pirates first baseman George Grantham provided most of the offense for Pittsburgh. Southpaw Emil Yde picked up the win, while Babe Admas notched his third save of the season. This lot features a “Ebbets Field Official Score Card” from the game, which lasted two hours and five minutes long. Measuring 6" x 8", the scorecard’s cover is split equally between two advertisers: Regal Shoes and Between the Acts Tobacco. Inside you’ll find the two teams’ lineups with each scorecard filled out accurately over the nine-inning game. Surrounding the game’s stats are vintage advertisements from the era including Truly Warner Hats, Gem Safety Razor Blades, Camel Cigarettes and G.G.G. Clothes. Overall condition is very good with the original two staples still holding the Saddle Stitched booklet together.
