An exhibition meeting between Hans Wagner's Pittsburgh Pirates and the American Association's Kansas City Blues is highlighted on this scarce and fragile paper advertising broadside, which announced the game on March 27, 1916. Text on the neatly framed, 7" x 21" piece focuses on the achievements of Wagner ("Tries to retire from the game every spring, but his owners and the Pittsburgh fans will not allow him.") and notes that the game would be "The Chance of a Life-time to see these Baseball Celebrities." Apparent EX condition with marginal staining and unobtrusive mailing folds.
