1922 World Series Program (Yankees vs Giants)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $948
Substantial sixteen-page large-format program issued for the 1922 World Series between the Giants and Yankees. The cover features large portrait images of each club's respective manager, John McGraw and Miller Huggins, while the interior pages include photos of league and team officials, as well as portraits of twenty-two members of both the Yankees and Giants. The fact that McGraw's portrait is to the left of Huggins' denotes this program as having been issued at the Polo Grounds for either Game 1, 3, or 5. (Each program issued for the 1922 World Series was identical save for the placement of the portrait images on the cover: the home team's manager was always positioned to the left.) The program, published by Harry M. Stevens, has not been scored. The preprinted lineups include Ruth, B. Meusel, and Hoyt for the Yankees, and Frisch, Kelly, I. Meusel, and Stengel for the Giants. The Giants swept the Yankees in five games in the 1922 World Series (one game ended in a tie), but the biggest story of the Series was Ruth's performance at the plate, or more aptly, his lack of performance. The Giants limited Ruth to just two hits in the five games, with no home runs and only one RBI. The program (9.25 x 11 inches) displays two moderate-to-heavy vertical folds and is otherwise in Very Good condition. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $948
