Library of Military Baseball Scorecards, Score-books and Game Programs

The goal of this library is to gather together as detailed an archive of these scarce documents from the games played by military teams. While my own collection is growing and is featured among these pieces, I am striving to capture as many artifacts as possible in order to present a workable reference for researchers and historians as well as fellow collectors. The principal focus of this archive are those pieces were printed and published for specific military baseball games however those used during the war years (WWI and WWII, specifically) for professional ballgames have many elements that align with the United States’ mission in tearing down aggression and tyranny (as may be seen in professional teams’ ephemera).
