The Boston Americans outlasted the Pittsburgh Pirates, five games to three, in the inaugural World Series back in 1903, and here's a photographic scorecard detailing all the post-mortem stats. The scorecard came with a Horner photo of 1903 Series player Hobe Ferris, who played second base for Boston. There is handwriting on the right side where the team names are written, indicating which city hosted each game, in same hand as the scorer. This was an important result as the Americans' win signaled the upstart American League could compete with the established National League, prompting more World Series thereafter.
