Folded to 3 3/4" x 6", outstanding official scorecard for an 1885 game between the Bridgeport Giants of the Southern New England league, and the independent Newark Domestics.  A number of future major leaguers appeared in the game, notably Tom Daly for Newark, and Jimmy Ryan for Bridgeport.  Though the game is unscored, the lineups and date have been pasted in place.  The dates of September 7 and 14, 1885, have been printed on the card as well. Appears VG/EX with some minor creasing in the corners, and some weakness at the fold.
