Apparently distributed at Wrigley Field, this unusually sized supplement (11-1/8 x 6-1/4") features the partially scored reverse for a Cubs-Phillies contest. Klein, Herman and Hartnett are listed in the Cubs lineup along with left fielder Ethan Allen, whose presence pinpoints the year as 1936. It was Warneke's third of five All-Star campaigns as he won 16 games and led the league in shutouts. VG-EX with a small spot of adhesive wear at top center of reverse. This example originated from Elwood Scharf's collection, and the only other matching Chicago American supplement we're aware of was a Tex Carleton that reached the auction block several years ago.
