1942 Negro League World Series Program
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $690.00
Historic Official Scorecard from the 1942 Negro League World Series game held September 29 at Shibe Park in Philadelphia between the Kansas City Monarchs and the Homestead Grays. This was the first Negro League World Series to be played after a ten year hiatus and also featured the legendary battle between pitching great Satchel Paige and power hitter extraordinaire Josh Gibson that was detailed in depth in Ken Burns' Baseball documentary. The program pictures Paige on the front and Gibson on the back cover. It has been opened to display both covers and has been mounted with tape to a framing board. Open, as displayed, the program measures 11" x 14." The program exhibits several horizontal creases, and some light watermarks in the upper corners. Despite these imperfections, this is still an extremely rare and historically significant Negro League scorecard, with tremendous display value, featuring two of the all-time greats from a lost era of professional baseball. Good condition. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $690.00
