Very rare pass to League Park for 1915. League Park was built as a wooden structure in 1891 and rebuilt using concrete and steel in 1910. League Park closed in 1946. The 1915 Indians finished seventh in the American League, but it's not as if they didn't have talented and noteworthy players: Bill Wambsganss, who once made an unassisted triple play at second base in the World Series; Ray Chapman, tragically killed by an errant pitch from Carl Mays; and Shoeless Joe Jackson, later involved with the Chicago Black Sox. Encapsulated and graded 1.5 FAIR by PSA because of scrapbook damage on the back. One side reads, "The Cleveland Base Ball Club Company 1915 Annual Pass." This side was a pass to the Cleveland Indians. The pass is actually double sided, and verso side reads, "Association Base Ball Club of Cleveland 1915 Annual Pass." This would have been a pass to the minor league Cleveland Spiders, of the American Association. So this was a two-sided pass to two different teams.
