The Giants finished 7 games ahead of the Bees in the 1940 N.L. standings—not that it counted for too much since the 6th- and 7th-place teams were 27.5 and 34.5 games out of pennant contention. Nevertheless, HOFers Mel Ott and Bill Terry led the charge for New York and are featured here. The VG program from 9/22/40 carries front/back-cover fountain-pen signatures averaging "9".
Giants: Ott ("8-9"), Terry, O'Dea, Danning, Seeds, Maynard (2), Hayworth, Young.
Bees: West, Berres, Wietelmann, Ross, Sisti, Cooney, Broskie, Javery, Hassett.
Uniquely matted at an angle with a 20x24 poster-like batting photo of Ott, then framed to 30x42. Full LOA from JSA.
