Eddie Gaedel Game Scorecard

Eddie Gaedel Game Scorecard

Only a few precious copies are known to exist of this St. Louis Browns game scorecard from August 19, 1951 commemorating if not one of baseball’s greatest moments surely its funniest -- when Bill Veeck, pulling his most outrageous stunt, sent midget Eddie Gaedel up to bat. The 3’7”, 65-pound entertainer had jumped out of a cake between games of the doubleheader with the Detroit Tigers, then, wearing number “1/8” pinch-hit in the bottom of the first inning and, with his microscopic strike zone, walked on four pitches before being yanked. Furious league officials then precluded any repeat of the farce, which has grown to legend status. The scorecard is blank and lists “1/8-Gaedel”first on the Browns player roster. Best of all, the 4-page cardboard scorecard (7 x 10.5”) is EX-MT, stunningly free of damage beyond light brown toning and very mild foxing around the edges away from the still-tight spine.
