Default 1912 World Series RPPC from Fenway - depicting a pivotal moment

Here is a RPPC depicting the pivotal moment of Game 3 of the 1912 World Series at Fenway Park. The RPPC says game 2, but as made clear below it actually means the 2nd game at Fenway which was Game 3 of the Series.

and here is the description of the ninth inning from the New York Times.


NYT-Word-Series-game-3-clipping-Net-54.jpg

We can tell from the scoreboard that it is the ninth inning and that the Red Sox trail the Giants 2 to 0. Boston is listed on the top line of scoreboard, as was tradition at that time, and so we can tell that Boston is at bat. If we enlarge the "Batter" portion of the scoreboard we can see that there is 1 out and "5" is at the bat. "5" would correspond to the 5 hole hitter who would be Gardner.

Now let's look at the players on the field in light of the play by play description in the NYT ariticle. Marquard is on the mound and Gardner has just ripped one down the line at first, you can see DeVore diving for the ball in vain and the 1st base coach indicating it is a fair ball. Lewis is running from 1st base and looking back over his shoulder to make sure the ball wasn't fielded. He was ultimately held up by Wagner at third and Gardner was held to a double by this caution. This would prove pivotal as Marquard managed to get out of the inning allowing only Lewis to score to preserve a 2 to 1 victory.

It is not often we get to see a key moment from a Deadball game in live action. If anyone else has a RPPC with a story to tell I'd love to hear it!

Neat postcard and work again, Jim.
Here is the closest thing I have...shown before but probably still fits here.

Default very neat postcards

Both of those are real nice. I wonder when the Evers-Griffith photo was taken. Seems it had to be a Spring Training game from 1915 or maybe 1914--hard to imagine what riled the Crab in such a who-cares setting. Pretty cool to have the addressee depicted in the photo. I bet he got a real hoot, kick or whatever it is that word the author used out of seeing himself in his mail.

Thanks. yeah, I suppose 0-4 with a boot as part of a continued slump could burn the fuse, although I saw from the account that he was unhappy with a called third strike on a teammate.

BTW Jim, I didn't mean to short you on the kudos for that amazing post card and your research. Well played, sir.

Always good to know Chic is in a card that you weren't aware of, as well the seller might not have been. Not sure if it would have made a selling price change or not....Thanks sir!!

Here is a recently picked up card with a RMY letter of authenticity with it....
