1915 World Series program issued at Boston. The attractive cover design of the 1915 Boston World Series program features individual portrait photos of the respective owners and managers for both Boston and Philadelphia (Joseph Lanin and William Carrigan for Boston and W. F. Baker and Pat Moran for Philadelphia). The interior pages include separate team photographs of Boston and Philadelphia, while a second Red Sox team photo appears on the back cover as part of an advertisement for Stag Brand Sweaters (Babe Ruth is included in each team photo). This classic early World Series program is especially significant as 1915 marked the first World Series appearance by Babe Ruth. The names of the respective pitchers for each club, Chalmers for Philadelphia, and Shore for Boston, have been filled in by hand. The program has been neatly scored in pencil for Game 4 of the Series and records a 2-1 Boston victory. Boston eventually defeated the Phillies in five games. Both this program and the other 1915 World Series program (scored for Game 3) offered in this auction originate from the same original-owner Boston-area collection and are new to the hobby. The program (7 x 10.375 inches) displays a light vertical fold, a little wear to the corners, a minor crease in the lower right, and few tiny edge tears. The pages remain clean and bright. Very strong condition for such an early World Series program. In Very Good to Excellent condition. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $2,233
