I will pass this on to my friend. It was a warehouse find and was just a small part of a very large purchase.

Was the picture taken where the item was unearthed? The background in the image looks very industrial. Ah, digging through a warehouse, what fun!

(And I won't even mention the outdoor wear on this sucker.)
When I was a kid all the basketball scoreboards in High schools only had two digits. When the team went over 100 they just left the one off. So the scoreboard might read as 97-05.
