I think the contest started to decline in popularity after the NY Giants went to San Francisco. Rheingold was the beer sold at the Polo Grounds, just as Schaffer was at Ebbets Field and Ballantine and Knickerbocker at Yankee Stadium. The scoreboard from Ebbets Field was sold to the Durham Bulls minor league team stadium (The DAP) in Durham, NC and was seen in the movie, "Bull Durham." A new stadium has since replaced The DAP, but I don't know whether the old scoreboard was moved to the new ballpark.
