Rare Boston Red Sox schedule booklet issued for the 1917 season. Featured within the four pages of this small, soft-cover booklet are the Red Sox's 1917 home schedule, a Fenway Park seating chart, and most important, a team photo of the 1916 World Champion Red Sox, including Babe Ruth. The title of this booklet is Official American League Schedule And World Champions Red Sox At Home 1917. The fact that the American League schedule is not included indicates, obviously, that one or more pages are missing from the booklet. This is the first example of this booklet we have ever seen and given its extremely fragile nature, we cannot imagine that more than just a few others have survived. The booklet (3.25 x 5 inches) displays a heavy horizontal fold, a rectangular area of toning on the cover, and near-complete separation of the covers from the spine. In Good condition overall. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
