1912 New York Giants (vs. Red Sox) World Series Program
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $711.00
New York Giants program issued for the 1912 World Series against the Boston Red Sox. The colorful cover which makes this program so ideal for display features a beautiful illustration of Giants manager John McGraw displaying a scroll with the Giants' record from 1903 to 1912, and a small inset photo of team president John T. Brush. The sixteen interior pages include team photos of both the Giants and Red Sox, photos of Giants team executives, photos of both American and National League executives, and even a full-page political advertisement for the Democratic Presidential ticket of Woodrow Wilson and Thomas Marshall. The program has not been scored. Boston eventually defeated the Giants in eight games (one game ended in a tie), with the Series regarded by many historians as one of the most exciting ever played. The victory also marked the first of Boston's four World Championships during the decade. The 1912 Giants World Series program is far rarer than its Boston counterpart, and this is the first we have offered in the past ten years. The front cover is detached but present and the back cover is missing. Aside from those two serious flaws, the program is otherwise in Very Good to Excellent condition. Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $711.00
