1925 Pittsburgh Pirates World Series Program

Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $4,060.00

The 1925 World Series program issued at Pittsburgh is one of the most condition-sensitive of all early World Series programs. One of the toughest programs of the 1920s to find in any condition, it is all the rarer to find in high grade due to the very thin, easily damaged quality of its interior pages. The program, featuring Pittsburgh's president Barney Dreyfuss on the cover and produced by Harris & Son Publishers of Pittsburgh, PA., includes sixteen pages packed with photos and advertisements. This example is lightly scored in pencil from Game 6 and has a neatly written blue ink date and game notation on the cover. This is a relatively strong example of this condition-sensitive rarity. It is flat, with bright, clean covers, clean interior pages, and is free of the most serious usual problems such as tearing which almost always plague the covers and interior pages of this edition. The program has a very light hint of a vertical fold, some side splitting along the spine, and the cover is detached at the bottom staple; overall in Vg-Ex condition and a far superior copy than usually found for this program. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $4,060.00
