Default 1948 Cardinals vs Cubs score card

Wanted to share this. My grandmother went to college in St. Louis in the 1940s and kept a scrap book of her high school and early college years. In it is this score card that is glued in.





Unknown back, it is fully attached to the page. The scrap book is not in my possession, so it will likely not be removed.

Default Political Ads abound

Interesting that there are 4 ads for candidates running for various offices. I believe that the "Everybody's Score Card" was a less expensive score card (sold outside the stadium) than the official scorecard one could buy inside the stadium

Very cool. I just found this great article on Cardinals score cards, which discusses Everybody's Score Cards in the third paragraph on page 45.

http://stlouis.cardinals.mlb.com/stl...rd_history.pdf

"For much of the first half
of the 1900s, team-produced scorecards
competed with “unofficial” scorecards
produced by bootleg vendors and sold
outside the ballpark, often under the
banner of “Everybody’s Scorecard.” Like
the official club-produced product, the
bootleg versions subsisted mainly with the
support of advertising, in effect providing
competition not only for game day sales
of scorecards to fans on the street but also
for the all-important advertising dollar."

icollectDCSports - thanks for sharing that article. As a rabid Cardinals home scorecard collector, found it very interesting. Here's my collection, with one for every year back to 1926 and a handful from earlier:

I've been asked to get a value on this. The item is not for sale (and I asked, if not for sale, why bother but there's no harm in asking I guess)
