    1947-64 Mel Allen Scorecards Lot of 41 & Award from Happy Chandler. Mel Allen was the voice of the Yankees for decades who filled the airwaves with baseball genius. Following his amazing run behind the microphone Allen was the voice of This Week in Baseball from 1977 until his death in 1996. Presented are forty-one scorecards, thirty-seven from World Series games, from Allen's personal collection. Many feature the Brooklyn Dodgers as the Yankees and bums almost met annually in the 1940's and '50's. Each scorecard measures 6x9.5" and is scored in pencil. Also included is a special award (8.25x10") presented to Allen from Albert "Happy" Chandler for his exemplary work on World Series broadcasts. Allen's face is engraved along with eight seasons of World Series dates included. The last year notated is 1950 so this was most likely presented in 1951. Light handling wear shown.
