This intriguing relic was produced by "Chris Luken's Cafe" in Cincinnati at the start of the 1910 season, and it shows the Opening Day scoreboards, batteries and umpires for each major-league game—plus a few minor-league contests. What's particularly significant about the date is that, prior to the Senators-Athletics game, President Taft inaugurated the tradition of our sitting commander-in-chief throwing out the first ball! Measures 5-3/8" x 3-1/2" and rates GD/VG with an unusual linen-like textured surface.
