Two-sided scorecard measuring approximately 5 1/2" x 3 3/4", between the Atlantic and Red Oak baseball teams of Iowa.  Independent teams in Southwest Iowa eventually organized into the Southwest Iowa Class D league in 1903; the league folded for financial reasons after just one season.  This scorecard has not been used; some pencil writing on one side suggests 1890 though there is really no way to verify this.  Presenting in VG/EX condition save for the writing, some surface abrasions are visible on the left edge of the Atlantic side of the scorecard.
