Description

On July 19, 1914 the lowly Boston Braves sat in the cellar of the National League at 33-43, over 15 games behind the first place New York Giants. By late July the Tribe began its assault on the National League and was victorious in 51 of their final 67 games, climbing the standings and eventually overtaking the Giants for the National League crown. In perhaps the greatest comeback in baseball history, the “Miracle Braves” eventually swept the hapless Philadelphia Athletics in the Fall Classic. The offered 1914 World Series Athletics vs. Braves scorecard is a profound memento from those October contests. This scorecard was published by the Philadelphia Press. Portraits of Hall of Famers Baker, Evers, Mathewson and Alexander are found on the back cover, while the front cover confirms the scorecard as being from the World Series. The gatefold scorecard notates the lineups for each squad. The pencil-marked scorecard is extensively worn with an encompassing vertical crease, finger prints, soiling throughout, creases and other wear. Despite those flaws, this intricate piece presents very well and is an interesting addition to any vintage memorabilia assemblage.
