1912 Boston Red Sox World Series Program

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,528

Boston Red Sox program issued for the 1912 World Series against the New York Giants. The 1912 Boston Red Sox World Series program has always been noted for its substantial design. Featured within its thirty-six pages are individual photos and short biographies of twenty-two Boston team members and front-office executives, including Tris Speaker, Harry Hooper, Joe Wood, player/manager Jake Stahl, Duffy Lewis, Bill Carrigan, and Hugh Bedient. The preprinted lineups include Mathewson, Doyle, Snodgrass, and Merkle for New York (Mathewson is noted as the starting pitcher), and Hooper, Yerkes, Speaker, Lewis, and Wood for Boston (Bedient is noted as the starting pitcher, with Wood in relief). The program has not been scored, but all of the totals are neatly tabulated in pencil for the eighth and final game of the Series, which was won by Boston 3-2 in ten innings. Boston's victory marked the the first of four World Championships for the club during the seven-year span 1912 through 1918, including consecutive World Titles in 1915 and 1916. The program (10 x 7 inches), which displays a light vertical fold, features the blue-ink notation "Giants-2/Red Sox-3/8th Game-Oct 16, 1912" written on the cover. Clear tape, which has since browned with age, has been applied to four pages in the center scorecard section along the interior spine in reinforcement of their having come detached from the lower of the two binding staples. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,528
