Official 1919 World Series Redland Field souvenir scorecard, with Pat Moran on the cover. The game has been scored in pencil, the writing considerably faded over time.  Though there are inconsistencies with the game scoring and the actual boxscore, it seems clear that this is from Game 2 at Redland, a 4-2 Reds victory, with Slim Sallee defeating Lefty Williams.  Swede Risberg made a one out error on a Morrie Rath ground ball in the 5th that allowed Bill Rariden to move to second base.  Overall the scorebook is in POOR condition, the cover repaired at the spine with clear tape, another strip of clear tape repairing a long tear across the front cover.  Additional surface and edge wear is apparent.  The interior scorecard page has separated from the rest of the book.  Still, a desirable scorecard, far more elaborate than the Comiskey Park scorecard from the Series.
