This was both Christy Mathewson and Mordecai Brown's last MLB baseball appearances.
Other news of the day. Usual browning with some margin wear and tear, minor text loss in unrelated area. Must be handled with care.
wikipedia notes: On July 20, 1916, Mathewson's career came full circle when he was traded to the Cincinnati Reds along with Edd Roush. He won one game with the Reds and served as their manager for the next three seasons.
Mathewson and Brown wrapped their respective careers by squaring off on September 4, 1916. The game was billed as the final meeting between the two old baseball warriors. The high-scoring game was a win for Mathewson's Reds over Brown's Cubs.
