I always thought Babe Ruth got his number by batting third. But he's batting cleanup here.

If it was their very first game with uniform numbers then it would be a Premium, but just a random scorecard/program from the 1929 season I would guess because its the Yankees and Ruth you are looking at about $200 give or take.






edited to add - my error not $100, about $200.

Those aren’t uniform numbers. Ruth wore number 3 and Gehrig #4, for starters. Koenig never wore 7. There also was no one with the high double digit and triple digit numbers shown below. And importantly, per Baseball Reference, the Tigers didn’t wear numbers on their uniforms until 1931. Those look like the numbers which correspond to the electric scoreboard tracking of the day.

Googled this:

In 1929, the New York Yankees were planning to start the season with uniform numbers on the back of the jersey. The Indians also planned to wear numbers in this fashion. The Yankees were rained out on opening day, April 16, while the Indians played, making Cleveland the first MLB franchise to wear numbers on the back. The Yankees debuted their numbered jerseys two days after, April 18.[3] By the mid-1930s, all MLB teams wore numbers;

I see Bots Nekola listed as a Yankee pitcher. He came to the Yankees in June of 1929, so your program could be from either the July 15-17 series or the August 14-17 series. I couldn't decipher the persons scoring.

It's the Aug 15 game.

Rice hit a HR in the first for the Tigers.

Whitehall shut out the Yankees with a 2 hitter.

Ruth was 0-2 with 2 walks, Gehrig 0-4.

You are looking at the wrong column. The numbers to the right of the Yankees names are noted as uniform numbers.
