I can't seem to find it by trying to match the 4.

Not quite...the top of the 5 doesn't slope like in the scorecard.

I've given up on trying to match the font...it's not worth the effort. Arial will suffice!

EDIT: I think it's a Garamond of some type. Try a Garamond Narrow or some slightly condensed version, or give it a less-than-100% horizontal. I think you'll have it.


Beautiful! Thanks.

"ITC Garamond Narrow Book" looks to me like that is exactly the same one. Take a look at http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/bitstream/itc-garamond/narrow-b... and key in digits as the sample text, to my eye it seems to be the same font. Pretty good looking digits too. I like how some of the digits (like the 3) descend a little bit.

It's close. The 7 and 9 appear to drop below the baseline, however. The R's don't see right for Bodoni, either.

You are right. The original picture needed to be a little bigger; it was hard to tell on some of the characters. Bodoni was my best guess.

SPEAKING of fonts, has anyone noticed how goddamned expensive Helvetica is?

Holy Christ! To buy even the basic three styles - base, italic, and bold - sets you back $78! Highway robbery!

Too bad there isn't anything else out there quite like it...
