Mailbag: I Got a Vintage Baseball Scorer

I not only chase after Baseball cards, but I also love snagging some oddball Baseball collectibles, as well.  Recently, I came across the above early 20th Century circular Baseball scorer on eBay and decided to place a bid.  I've already got a couple of similar scorers in my collection, so I figured this would look great in a wall display I have. 

According to the auction it dates to 1908, but I haven't a clue if that is accurate.  Still, I love the look of it, and it has many of the qualities I look for in a piece purported to be this old.  On the other hand, it could be an elaborate fake.  Considering I took it home for just $16 delivered, I was willing to take the risk.  If anyone happens to know more about it, please pass that information along.
