Rare promotional advertising scorecard issued by Early & Bishop, a Cedarville, Kansas-based tailor.  Measuring approximately 13 1/4" x 10 1/4" unfolded, the piece features the members of the World Series participants, including a rookie photo of Babe Ruth, making the first of many World Series appearances of his career.  Overall in outstanding condition, a small corner clip is visible on the lower-left, otherwise in remarkable condition, particularly given the fact that it is produced on lighter card stock.  Each of the players pictured in the inset photos are identified on the scorecard page, including stars Smoky Joe Wood, Harry Hooper (HOF), Dave Bancroft (HOF), Grover Alexander (HOF), Eppa Rixey (HOF), and Tris Speaker (HOF).  It lists a number of team and player stats, including a list of World Champion teams dating back to 1903 - including the 1915 Red Sox, meaning the piece is promotional in nature and was actually produced after the World Series.  Despite this, this is a rare and important scorecard, a document from the first full season of Babe Ruth, and his first World Series appearance.
