Among the players listed on the scorecard are 'High Pockets' Kelly and Jim Thorpe for the New York Giants, and Rube Marquard, Zack Wheat, and Casey Stengel for the Brooklyn Robins (later known as the Dodgers). The back cover has an interesting ad for Sweet Caporal cigarettes depicting the roster of Brooklyn's first ball team, the Atlantics. In very good condition, with a central vertical fold, some toning and chipping to edges, and partial separation to spine.
