NOTES:
 
     This "Duplicate Counter" was made by the Whitehead & Hoag Company, who made over 5,000 different advertising novelty items from about 1892 until 1959. The June 1905 Patent on the back is a process for printing on Pyroxylin AKA Celluloid, a material used to make such items as pin back buttons, or this scorekeeper. The company also made Press Pins for the World Series, and the 1910-12 Sweet Caporal premium pins.

 This  Celluloid advertising novelty that functions as a baseball score keeper is shaped as a 1910's era baseball mitt. The glove features dials to change the numbers at the top, bottom and each side. Starting from the top clockwise there are indicators for; "OUTS," "RUNS HOME TEAM," "INNINGS," and "RUNS VISITING CLUB." Whitehead & Hoag would offer these novelties to sporting goods related companies and featured their adverting on the front and back.

 The advertisement on the front of this novelty is for the William Read & Sons company of Boston, Mass. A sporting goods company that originally specialized in military arms and sporting goods. During the Civil War Read's supplied the Union Troops with most of their guns and ammunition. In 1921 Wm Read & sons was taken over by the Winchester Company. The Advertisement reads from top to bottom: "ATHLETIC OUTFITTERS WM READ & SONS." followed by the Wm Read & Sons circle bullet design logo with "Trade" - "Mark" on each side respectively. Below reads; "BOSTON MASS., CHARGES PREPAID TO ANY POINT IN THE, UNITED SATATES, DUPLICATE COUNTER, 10 CENTS

 The back, on this advertising novelty features Blue Trade Mark Athletic Goods, which is a product of Wm Read & Sons. The advertisement reads from top to bottom; OUTFITTERS FOR, BASE BALL TEAMS, A SPECIALTY, THE FAMOUS BLUE TRADE MARK ATHLETIC GOODS, SEND FOR, SAMPLE BOOK OF, UNIFORM FLANNELS, AND SPECIAL CLUB PPRICES, ALSO COMPLETE CATALOGUE" The fine print at the very bottom reads "COPYRIGHT APPLIED FOR, PAT, JUNE 1905 THE WHITEHEAD & HOAG CO. NEWARK NJ"

  Theses Celluloid score keepers have an estimated value of about $75.-$125. more or less with prices varying based on condition, and the advertiser featured
