Circa 1910 Rambler Automobile Baseball Scorer

Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $411

Rare celluloid baseball scorer issued by the Thomas B. Jeffery Company in promotion of its Rambler automobile, circa 1910. We have seen only a few examples over the years of this substantial and decorative advertising scorer. The colorful front pictures an illustration of the Rambler auto, with the design incorporating eight serrated spools to denote the runs, hits, and errors for each respective club, as well as the inning and number of outs. The reverse features the name of the Thomas B. Jeffery Company of Illinois, promotional text for the Rambler, and cartoon mascots for both the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs (indicating that this was a local promotional piece). The Thomas B. Jeffery Company began production of the Rambler, nicknamed the "Kenosha Cadillac" after its place of manufacture, in 1900. In 1914 the brand name was changed to "Jeffrey" in honor of the founder of the company. The scorer (3.75 x 2 inches) displays only some extremely light surface wear on the front and reverse; otherwise it is in Near Mint condition. Reserve $100. Estimate $200+. SOLD FOR $411
