Description



It was one of the greatest, most climactic games in World Series history—a 12-inning battle edged out by the Senators on Muddy Ruel's championship-clinching run after not one but two bizarre "bad hops" that got past Freddie Lindstrom. (There is fascinating, must-see film footage of the game that was discovered a few years ago and is now available for viewing through the Library of Congress website.) Measuring 6-3/4" x 10", this Game 7 program is neatly scored in pencil through 8 innings, right around when the drama ramped up, when Walter Johnson entered the game, and when witnessing history took precedence over scorekeeping! It's notated for posterity on the front cover, "Oct. 10 1924 / World Series 1924 / Seventh Game / Score Washington 4 / New York 3 / M.L. Dennis." Nice portrait shots of Walter Johnson, Sam Rice, Goose Goslin and company appear inside. Overall condition is VG with cover staining.
