In 1913, the Cleveland Napoleons, managed by Joe Birmingham, finished in third place in the American League standings with a record of 86-66-3. Offered here is an official scorecard (filled out in pencil) from the 1913 Napoleons that featured a game pitting Cleveland against the visiting Washington Senators. The black, white and red (pink) cover has become separated from the interior pages with heavy spine wear to the cover that’s bad enough that the front and back are barely held together. Of note is that this particular game, played July 14 of 1913, had right fielder Shoeless Joe Jackson and second baseman Nap Lajoie in the starting lineup for Cleveland, and Walter Johnson on the mound for Washington.  In this game, Jackson hit a home run off the Big Train, one of just 54 he hit in his entire career.  The scorecard measures approx 5.5" x 8.75".
