USS Lexington vs Seattle Indians (PCL) June 6, 1932

This roster (or program) for an exhibition game played between the Seattle Indians (of the Pacific Coast League) and the baseball team from the visiting aircraft carrier, USS Lexington (CV-2), is in rough condition but possesses fantastic information (source: eBay images).

Printed on heavy paper stock, this two-sided, single sheet program/roster card from the June 6, 1932 game between the USS Lexington and the Pacific Coast League’s Seattle Indians (the club’s nickname before changing to the “Rainiers” in 1938 with brewery magnate Emil Sick purchased the franchise).

The condition of the piece is fair with heavy discoloration, fading and water damage. Fortunately, the print and image (of the Navy’s carrier) are clearly visible.
