Wildcard Wednesday: Who’s keeping score?

My grandparents moved recently and in sorting through all their belongings, someone happened to unearth this old scorecard. It’s from a match-up between the Washington Senators and the New York Yankees that my grandfather must have attended as a boy. There isn’t a day or month listed anywhere, but the year (according to the front of the card) was 1942.

This neat little memento has been entrusted into my hands, and I just can’t resist sharing it.

Some of the advertisements are fun, too. Most are for either hotels or cigarettes…
