Interesting scorecard of the Bridgeport Giants of 1885, published by Wm. H. Josselyn featuring attractive lithographic artwork on the cover.  This is likely one-half of what was once a folded piece, the Bridgeport opponent appearing on the reverse side.  The 1885 Bridgeport team featured several players who enjoyed major league careers, most notably Jimmy Ryan, who posted an 18-year career, mostly with the Cubs, and a lifetime .308 batting average.  The Giants scored five runs in this contest, though we will never know who they played or what the final score was.  Still, a very attractive piece from baseball's earliest days.
