This circa 1895 Andover vs. Yale official scorecard includes the printed starting rosters of both men’s baseball teams on the inside facing pages. Sporting a mint green hue, 5" x 6" scorecard includes various advertisements on the front cover with the back cover blank. The facing pages inside are partially filled in through eight innings of play. Noticeable fraying is present on the edges and one corner has been torn off on the back page.  Accompanying research indicates that this scorecard is likely from 1895, as each of the players in listed in the scorecard are mentioned in two 1895 newspaper summaries, copies of which are also included with the scorecard.
