1911 World Series Scorecard In the early days of baseball, stadium scoreboards were sometimes non-existent or inadequate. Fans who wanted to keep well informed at the game had to keep score themselves. Thus personal scorecards were required equipment. (Of course they were sold at the ballpark.) Here's one from the 1911 World Series sold at the Polo Grounds in New York City. The Philadelphia Athletics beat the New York Giants in six games in the 1911 Fall Classic. Giants' owner John T. Brush is pictured on the scorecard.

1933 World Series Scorecard The 1933 World Series pitted the National League champion New York Giants versus the American League champion Washington Senators. (The team was officially the Nationals, but they were commonly called the Senators by baseball writers and fans.) Both managers were player/managers. Bill Terry, New York's first baseman, was in his first full season as Giants' manager. Likewise, Joe Cronin was in his first full season as the Senators' pilot. Cronin played shortstop for Washington. This is what a souvenir scorecard from Washington's Griffith Stadium looked like. The Giants won the first two games at the Polo Grounds, lost the third game at Griffith Stadium, but won the next two--both in extra innings--to capture the World Series in five games. To date, Game Five, on October 7, was the last World Series game played in Washington.

1903 World Series Scorecard In days gone by, all serious baseball fans used to manually keep a batter-by-batter record of ballgames on scorecards. (Some of us still do, although the custom appears to be dying out.) For the first modern World Series in 1903, the Third Base Saloon in Boston sold their own version to fans heading to the Huntington Avenue Base Ball Grounds to watch the American League champion Boston Pilgrims battle the National League champion Pittsburgh Pirates. Although the 10-cent price of this scorecard seems ridiculously cheap by today's standards, it was double the cost of what scorecards normally sold for at the ballpark during the regular season. However, it was five cents cheaper than the 15-cent pricetag the Pilgrims had affixed to the World Series scorecards sold by their vendors. The Boston Globe editorialized the hometown club was 'squeezing the dear public.'

Rocky Marciano Punch Photo One of my favorite sports photographs: Challenger Rocky Marciano lands a solid right hand on champ Jersey Joe Walcott's jaw during their September 23, 1952 world heavyweight title fight in Philadelphia. Trailing on the scorecards, Marciano rallied to win by a 13th-round kayo. Many people wrongly assume this was the knockout punch; it wasn't. Walcott was along the ropes when Marciano caught him with the fateful blow.

Boxer Ron Lyle 1941-2011 Former heavyweight contender Ron Lyle died on November 26, 2011 as a result of complications from stomach surgery. He was 70. Lyle spent more than seven years in a Colorado prison for his part in a 1961 gang murder. He took up boxing while incarcerated. Lyle, paroled in 1969, did not have his first pro fight until 1971 when he was 30. He compiled an excellent 43-7-1 professional record, but his two most famous fights were losses. Lyle was stopped by Muhammad Ali in a May 16, 1975 world title fight in Las Vegas. Lyle was leading on the judges' scorecards when the fight was stopped, somewhat controversially by the standards of the day, in the 11th round. On January 24, 1976, Lyle engaged in a memorable crossroads fight versus George Foreman, also in Las Vegas. It was a wild, nationally televised brawl that featured both men in trouble several times. Each man was knocked down twice. Foreman eventually prevailed by a fifth-round knockout. Boxing historian Bert Sugar claimed it was "the most two-sided fight" he had hever seen.

George Foreman Regains Title at 45 George Foreman was an intimidating bruiser when he won the world heavyweight title by demolishing Joe Frazier in 1973. He surprisingly lost the crown to Muhammad Ali in Zaire in 1974. By 1977 Foreman was out of boxing and was making a living preaching in Texas. With funds getting a little low, Foreman made what many fans thought was a crazy comeback in 1987 at age 38. Much slower than he had been in his prime, Foreman could still hit with great power, though. Now a fan favorite because of his new likable persona, Foreman had a series of comeback wins. He lost a title try to Evander Holyfield in 1991 at age 42. Three years later he was given another shot against new champion Michael Moorer. Trailing badly on the scorecards entering the tenth round, the 45-year-old Foreman shocked the world with an historic knockout blow, as this clip shows. Listen to Jim Lampley's succinct call: "It happened! It happened!" Also listen to the excited, joyous cheering of the pro-Foreman crowd when Moorer hits the deck. It ranks as one of the magical moments in sports history.

1909 World Series Scorecard Before electric scoreboards came along, fans who wanted to follow a baseball game closely kept personal scorecards. (Some still do, God bless them!) This skill, of course, required an attention span which is something of a dying trait these days. This scorecard is from the 1909 World Series between the Detroit Tigers and Pittsburgh Pirates. Notice how Pittsburgh is spelled without the "h." This is not a misprint. At the time the U.S. Post Office wanted to standardize the spellings all American cities that ended with "burgh" to make them "burg." Everyone complied for a while, but after a couple of decades many cities slowly reverted back to the spelling as it appeared on their charters. Oh, yeah: Pittsburgh won the 1909 World Series in seven games.
