I've got a collection of Cubs scorecards from 1958 to 2012. The format of the card is exactly the same throughout the entire run. The card is always four pages. Page one is the cover, page two has the score sheet, page three has ballpark or player information, and page four is an ad. The size and the cardstock also seems the same today as it was 44 years ago.
You will also be able to tell when the team was sold by the Wrigley family to the Tribune...that would be the first time you see an ad on the cover. In fact, the first 13 cover under Tribune ownership were similar in design and pretty boring. It took until the 1995 season that the Trib started varying the cover from year to year. They started getting creative, but nothing that matched the style of the Otis Shepard and Shepard-inspired designs that occupy the top four rows of the tile. Those are unique works of art.
Anyone else have a scorecard collection to go with their baseball cards?
