Description

    Rare 1913 Shiro's Candy Baseball Hand Held Fan/Score Card. Humorous early 20th century fan plays double-duty by keeping fans cool on a hot summer afternoon at the ball park and as a scorekeeper. Found with various advertisements, this scarce relic was distributed by Shiro's Ice Cream base out of Belfast. The front provides places for the user to keep track of runs, hits, and errors surrounded by 16 comical illustrations using the managers of baseball's 16 teams as inspiration. Recognizable faces include Clarke, Dooin, Evers, Griffith, Tinker, McGraw, Dahlen, Jennings, Mack, Stahl, Stallings, Chance, Huggins, Callahan, Stovall and Lajoie, each an illustrated mascot based on the teams' namesake. Including the wooden handle that supports it, fan measures 14" from top to bottom. Aside from a few light and short wrinkles/creases and a pencil notation on the back, this presents at the excellent to mint condition.
