The tradition of the Fall Classic is one that goes back to 1903, leading vintage collectors to pay special attention to specimens from vintage Championship contests that may be hard to find. This lot of (6) items certainly fit into the aforementioned category. Includes:
1930 World Series Shibe Park program: Issued at Shibe Park, the 40-page guide features black-and-white photos of the participants, as well as scorecard pages with pre-printed lineups and unmarked grids. Presents VG with tape reinforced spine;
(2) 1944 World Series Cardinals Sportsman's Park programs: issued for the series opener on October 4, the 36-page publications feature black-and-white player photos and war-themed ads, as well as scoring grids with blank pre-printed lineups. Though the venue was “neutral,” the Cardinals were the hosts that day, and the programs show more “Redbird” support in terms of its ads. With covers and all pages intact, the guides show (VG) quality with cover and spine wear
1949 World Series program: issued for game 4 on October 8 at Ebbets Field. The scoring grids have the lineup noted, but have not been scored and notations on cover document the game of issue. The cover has heavy wear, necessitating a low-grade assessment. 48-page program features interior pages that are a few grades better with only light creasing and scattered wear
17x11 1929 World Champion Athletics Philadelphia Inquirer supplement display: framed display that contains a supplement extracted from a period newspaper. Bold and vivid colors in the image that depicts Hall of Famers Collins, Foxx, Grove, Mack & Simmons. Technically presents (VG-EX) due to light creasing that is only visible upon closer inspection
21x15 1929 National League Champion Cubs Philadelphia Inquirer supplement display: framed display that contains a supplement extracted from a period newspaper. Bold and vivid colors in the image that depicts Hall of Famers Cuyler, Hartnett, Hornsby & Wilson.
