Official Souvenir Scorecard, 1933 World's Series

On the surface, sports thrill us with athleticism. But they also tell stories about life – how raw grit, a split decision, or a bad bounce can tip the scales between victory and defeat. The anticipatory drama of baseball is perfectly captured in this program from Game 3 of the 1933 World Series. The pages of player photos and biographies invite fans to predict the worthier men on the field; the pencil-marks in the scorecard record the men who actually were – on that day. Despite their win, the Senators lost the series. Washington hasn’t seen a World Series since.
