This is a particularly rare All Star Game program, and also one that is plainly designed compared to other All-Star programs, as in 1939 the Yankees simply issued a regular-season program with a specially printed interior scorecard section for the game; it otherwise looks exactly like a regular-season 1939 Yankees program. Lineups include DiMaggio, Greenberg, Cronin, and Dickey for the American League and Ott, Medwick, and Vaughan for the National League. Records a DiMaggio home run in the American League's 3-1 victory. Gd. Total: 19 scorecards. Reserve $500. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $2,370
