Note: This was the first time that a championship match took place in a hotel in Pittsburgh. There
was a special seating section for ladies and it was filled every night. Large crowds were on
hand nightly.
The Emblem became Eby’s by time limit in May 1903, and up to October 1904, no other
championship has been instituted.
