Official Comiskey Park scorecard for a 1933 game between the Yankees and White Sox.  The second game of a doubleheader, Chicago won the game, 5-4, though the Yankee lineup did provide some fireworks - Babe Ruth went 1-for-1 with an RBI before being lifted for a pinch runner.  Behind him, Lou Gehrig went 3-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI.

The game itself is not scored beyond the top of the first inning, the play-by-play at Baseball-reference.com helping us identify the game.  The scorecard itself is in fair condition, heavily creased at the fold with significant soiling.  Some doodles are written in pencil inside the scorecard, which is folded irregularly and heavily creased from being folded into quarters.
