1928 New York Yankees World Series Program
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $592.50
Substantial twenty-page large-format program (from the glory days of Ruth and Gehrig!) issued for a 1928 World Series game between the Yankees and Cardinals at Yankee Stadium. The 1928 World Series program at New York is especially noted for its extremely decorative cover, which features portraits of opposing managers Miller Huggins and Bill McKechnie. Few programs are more highly suited for display. The interior pages include photos of league and team officials, as well as portraits of twenty-five members of both the Yankees and Cardinals. Published by Harry M. Stevens. The program has not been scored but the preprinted lineups include Ruth, Gehrig, Lazzeri, Combs, and Meusel for New York, and Frisch, Bottomley, Hafey, Maranville, and Alexander for St. Louis. The Yankees, who easily swept the Pirates in the 1927 fall classic, continued their postseason dominance in 1928 by defeating the Cardinals in four straight, thus becoming the first team in history to win eight consecutive World Series games. (The Yankees would improve on that streak by sweeping the Cubs in the 1932 World Series.) The program (9.25 x 11 inches) displays some wear, including a few abrasions to the cover, and minor staining (covers and interior pages; one stain affects the rear cover and fourteen interior pages). In overall Very Good condition. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $592.50
