Paper advertising broadside measures 7 1/2" x 9 1/4" and advertises a "Bees vs. Cubs" game, utilizing 1876 rules, to be played on June 24 to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of baseball.  Advertising the game being played with 1876 rules, the broadside reads as follows:

In 1876

Trams ride to park in horse drawn hacks
players wear neckties but no gloves
Foul flies are out on first bounce
Batter calls for high or low ball
Pitcher delivers ball underhanded

In 1936

You can see the 1876 rules in action at
National League Field June 24

Accompanying the broadside is a 10" x 8" photo picturing what appears to be a horse-drawn carriage, bringing old-time players to a ballpark.  19 men are seated or standing in the carriage, each in street clothes, none identified.  The photo is wrinkled and worn, with a few edge tears, the slug missing from the reverse.  The broadside, printed on brittle newsprint, has had some paper flake away at the edges and upper-left corner, but is otherwise strong.  Two pieces total.
