Featured here is an official authentic and particularly filled-in scorecard from a men’s baseball contest held on May 4, 1892, between the host Princeton Tigers and the visiting Wesleyan Methodists (now known as The Cardinal). The slightly pink scorecard, which measures 3.75" x 6.75", shows discoloration across the front cover and across the inside facing pages, with an irregular fold. The back cover includes patches of lost type and color due to aging. Assorted period advertisers adorn the back cover including the Hankins’ Drug Store as well as Joseph Priest Ice Cream and Soda Water.
