1912 Honus Wagner Advertising Scorecard
Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $533
Promotional fold-over baseball scorecard, issued in 1912 by Carl Joseph & Co., of Chicago, Illinois, featuring a full-length image of Honus Wagner on the front. In addition to Wagner's image, the scorecard also displays portrait images of players and managers on both the National League champion New York Giants and World's Champions Philadelphia Athletics, including John McGraw, Christy Mathewson, Rube Marquard, Eddie Plank, Frank Baker, Connie Mack, Chief Bender, and Eddie Collins. Additional portrait images of Honus Wagner, Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, and Ed Walsh complete the attractive design. Information on the back of the scorecard includes a listing of the past National and American pennant winners up to the year 1911 (which dates the piece to 1912). The scorecard (13.75 x 5 inches; unfolded) displays a minor tear along the base of the fold line, a few light abrasions on the front and back covers (minor surface paper loss), and pencil erasures to the scoring section (it appears that the lineups were once filled in and the game scored, but both sections are now erased). In Good to Very Good condition overall. Reserve $100. Estimate $200+. SOLD FOR $533
