Menu for Al Schacht’s Score Card Restaurant in New York

Lot 584. Menu for Al Schacht’s Score Card Restaurant in New York From 1919-21, Schacht won 14 games as a pitcher for the Washington Senators. From 1924-35, he was well regarded as the team’s third base coach. It was his comedic skills and antics, however, that resulted in his being dubbed “The Clown Prince of Baseball.” From the mid-1930s into the early 1940s, he toured the country presenting his comedy routine. At the Polo Grounds in 1944, he entertained 50,000 spectators at a baseball event involving the Dodgers, Giants and Yankees to raise money through the sale of War Bonds. He also entertained U.S. service members overseas during World War II. In recognition, a New York Baseball Writers program contains these words about Schacht in a poem that first mentions foreign leaders - “As for us, we’ll take the toast of GI heroes: That big beloved screwball from The Bronx!” Schacht opened his first restaurant in Manhattan in 1942. The menu, with Schacht’s image on the front, was folded horizontally and otherwise has a vg+ to ex appearance. Inside is the rest of story of Casey, that batter who disappointed Mudville fans. In the version Schact presents, Casey has a better day against a hapless pitcher named Flanagan Winning Bid $25.
