1933 All-Star Game Scorecard
Starting Bid - $800.00, Sold For - $1,725.00
Superb high-grade official program from the very first All-Star game. Arch Ward, the sports editor of the Chicago Tribune, organized the first All-Star Game in 1933 as an attraction for Chicago's Exposition. That first game, played July 6, 1933 at Comiskey Park, featured what many consider to have been the greatest assembly of baseball talent to ever take the field in a single game. Seventeen future Hall of Famers made appearances in the game, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Frank Frisch, Chuck Klein, Chick Hafey, Bill Terry, Paul Waner, Pie Traynor, Gabby Hartnett, and Carl Hubbell. Connie Mack and John McGraw served as managers for their respective leagues. Babe Ruth hit the first homer in All-Star game history. Frisch provided the NL offense, with a two-run homer in the sixth inning, but the combined talents of Lefty Gomez and Babe Ruth allowed the American League to prevail, 4-2. Neatly scored in pencil. Extremely clean and perfectly flat, with no tears, and a flawless spine, the scorecard has only a few extremely light, tiny creases along the left edge, barely detectable and mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy, and is otherwise in strong Excellent condition. An exceptionally sharp and attractive example of this significant rarity. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $1,725.00
