The brainchild of Chicago Tribune Sports Editor Arch Ward, the Major League Baseball All-Star Game debuted in 1933 to rave reviews. This scorecard was issued at Chicago’s Comiskey Park for that inaugural Mid-Summer Classic. The thick-stock folding keepsake features a profile image of John Lewis Comiskey (who had inherited the White Sox from his father in 1931) on the front cover. The center pages are home to scoring grids with pre-printed lineups that include a devastating 3-4 punch of Ruth and Gehrig for the “home” team. The grids have been marked in graphite pencil to document a 4-2 Junior Circuit triumph in which Ruth appropriately christened the event with its first-ever home run. The diamond heirloom is complete and has a vertical compacting fold (which is quite common with stadium-issued publications of this era).
