Description

Memories abound with these (10) programs issued at Fall Classic installments spanning 1934 through 1962. Among the on-field highlights were the removal of a player for his own safety, as well as the last World Series played entirely at the same venue. Conditions vary with publications hailing from: 1934: Navin Field; 1942: Yankee Stadium; 1943: Sportsmanís Park; 1947: Ebbets Field; 1951: Yankee Stadium; 1957: County Stadium; 1958: Yankee Stadium; 1961: Yankee Stadium; 1962: Candlestick Park. More on our website.

1934: issued at Detroitís Navin Field (possibly for Game 7, which saw Commissioner Landis order St. Louis outfielder Ducky Medwick off the field as unruly Tigers fans pelted him with debris while the hosts were getting blown out). Program presents (VG-EX) but is technically lesser with page (including one of the scoring grids) missing.

1943: issued at Sportsmanís Park for the Game 5 clincher; 32-page program presents (VG) with wear and creases throughout, as well as partially marked scoring grids

1942: issued at Yankee Stadium; 36-page program presents nicely with minor age-induced toning on the covers and (NM) quality on the crisp pages and unmarked scoring grids

1944: issued at Sportsmanís Park for either Game 3, 4 or 5 (St. Louis Browns home games). 40-page guide presents (VG-EX) with unmarked scoring grids. This was the last World Series played entirely at the same venue, as Sportsman's Park was home to both the St. Louis Cardinals and St. Louis Browns.

1947: issued at Ebbets Field; 48-page program presents (VG-EX) with wear, creases and very minor instance of front cover paper loss. Scoring grids are unmarked

1951: issued at Yankee Stadium; 48-page guide presents (EX) with unmarked scoring grids

1957: issued at County Stadium; 40-page program presents (NM) with crease-free covers/pages and unmarked scoring grids

1958: issued at Yankee Stadium; 48-page publication presents (VG-EX) with unmarked scoring grids

1961: issued at Yankee Stadium; 52-page guide presents (EX) with very crisp pages and unmarked scoring grids

1962: issued at Candlestick Park; 52-page program presents (VG-EX) with wear about the front cover and a small tear on the back cover
