Default Scorecard from DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak?

I have a 1941 NY Yankee scorecard which I am trying to figure out whether it was one of the games from DiMaggio's hitting streak. I am looking for opinions from anyone out there to see what you think.
The actual score sheet has been written on. Having that to start with usually makes it very easy to track down the actual game. But it appears that the person who kept score didn't really know how to keep score or was just drunk during that game.
So, I used the following link as my reference: http://www.baseball-reference.com:80...e-scores.shtml
I went thru all the home games where the Yankees played the Red Sox. None of them matched my score sheet exactly. When I went thru the play by play, I came across the following game which was very close to my score sheet.

http://www.baseball-reference.com:80...94105240.shtml

One example of the kind of mistakes that were found in my score sheet was the following. The score sheet said that DiMaggio had 3 hits. If you look at the Baseball Reference play by play, it says that he had 1 hit and reached base by error 2 times.

So, would just love to see if you agree with me that this score sheet is game 38 of the season and it was game 10 of the 56 game hitting streak. It also took place on May 24, 1941.

Here is my score sheet.

I think you might be right, but if you could email me a better scan I can possibly be more sure of my opinion.

Thank you for the better quality scan Howard.

I agree that this program is scored for the May 24 game.

It's not scored particularly well, but it is (in my opinion) from that game.

I have nearly 6,000 scored programs & scorecards, so I consider myself to be pretty good at dating them.

Some notations don't make sense (like the marks by Grove, even though he didn't appear in this game), but there are too many matches to the box score for it to be any other game.

Ruffing pinch hit, so that explains the mark by his name, but weird that none of the three Yankee pitchers are marked.

Before anybody asks, Grove only appeared in two games versus the Yankees in 1941, and this scorecard is definitely not from either of those games, and Ruffing did not appear in either of those games.

Doug,

Thanks for looking at it. I trust your judgement.

There were several flaws in the score card. For example, he had the Red Sox winning 3-2. In 1941, there were no games with the same score between the 2 teams at Yankees Stadium. He also did not score the top of the first inning.
But there were several innings which matched exactly to the box score from Baseball Reference.
So far, I am convinced that this is a scorecard from the hitting streak. Now that you have also confirmed it, I feel even better about it.
