NOTES:
 
    Most wartime (WWII) Minor & Negro League baseball teams from about 1943-1945, used this patriotic cover for their scorecards. The great red White and blue artwork done by the artist Valentine, features Uncle Sam swinging a bat, wearing a U.S. cap, star-spangled vest, and red striped pants. The red portion at the bottom featured an American Flag on the left, the .10 cents price on a baseball to the right, centered by the name of the team using the program.

 This 1945 "Official Score Book" was used by the "Lucky" Portland BEAVERS, a Double-A team of the Pacific Coast League. The team used this cover from 1943-1945. Other noted teams that used this cover include: the San Francisco Seals, Mobile Bears, Louisville Colonels, St. Paul Saints, Toledo Mud Hens, and the Chicago Brown Bombers of the Negro League.

 The Back cover has a coupon for a chance to "WIN A $500. WAR BOND" courtesy of - the Portland Bottling Co. Bottlers of 7-UP. You needed to be present when the drawing was made during the last game of the season. The $500. War Bond Drawing was standard for the back cover but with different sponsors, local to the baseball team.

 The centerfold features the visiting teams scorecard followed by the Portland Beaves on the next page. Advertisements include, Hillerich & Bradsby co. "Louisville Slugger Bats Standard Wherever Baseball is played, both teams use them" The score book also promotes the buying war Bonds stating "Put the Pay in Patriotism - Buy Another War Bond Today" There are also raffles held at each Saturday and Sunday ball game sponsored by a number of local "Patriotic Portland Business Institutions"

 Each scorecard is provided with unique "War Bond Lucky Number" and during the playing of each Saturday & Sunday home games, some lucky Beaver baseball fan will win a $25.00 War Bond. An advertisement for the Durham & Bates insurance agency included a ballot for fans to elect the Portland's most popular player, the winning player would receive a $100. War Bond. The Commercial Iron Works advertised, "PLAY BALL! with the men on the firing line. Men needed at once to build and repair fighting ships for the U.S. Navy!"
