Single-page official scorecard for an April 28, 1897 game between Wesleyan and New York University, apparently won by Wesleyan.  Measuring just shy of 5 1/2" x 3 1/8", the most interesting part of the scorecard advertised the upcoming game with the Cuban Giants (perhaps the Cuban X-Giants or "Original Cuban Giants,").  Carefully scored in pencil, the piece exhibits some wear and discoloration at the right edge on the Wesleyan side of the scorecard.
