Attractive and colorful lithographic printed scorecard for a September 25, 1884 game between the Baltimore Orioles and the Louisville Eclipse (which definitely sounds like a 21st Century team name, and not something from the earliest days of the game).  The 1884 Orioles were paced by pitchers Bob Emslie (32-17, 2.75 ERA) and Hardie Henderson (27-23, 2.62).  The Eclipse were led by pitcher Guy Hecker, who posted a ridiculous 52-20 record with a 1.80 ERA (and who lost this particular game, 10-3).  The scorecard presents well but is split in half at the fold from over a century of use, and is also marred by a long vertical fold down the center that has resultsd in notched paper at the top and bottom edge.  Still, the cover (which features the image of Henderson) presents very well, with all manner of colors, a bright and clean 19th Century collectible that could benefit from being housed in a small frame.
