1914 Boston Braves and Philadelphia Athletics World Series Programs (2)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,422.00
Set of 1914 World Series programs, one issued at Boston and one issued at Philadelphia. 1) The colorful cover of the 1914 World Series program issued at Boston features a portrait of Boston Braves manager George Stallings, identified below as "The Miracle Man." Stallings' title was well deserved as this was the season that his "Miracle Braves" went from last place to first place between July 18 and August 25th, en route to winning the pennant by 10 1/2 games. They then went on to sweep the powerful and heavily favored Philadelphia A's in the World Series (4-0). The interior pages feature photos, including team pictures of both squads. Not scored. Condition problems, including a repaired spine, technically allow an overall grade of only Fr-Gd, but still a very collectible original example. 2) The 1914 World Series at Philadelphia Athletics program is neatly scored in pencil (Game 2). The scarcity of this program and its outstanding cover graphics both contribute to its stature as one of the most desirable programs of the era. This is a very pleasing example of one of the most difficult-to-find World Series programs of the era. A single light vertical fold and tape along the spine, otherwise in Excellent condition. Total: 2 programs. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,422.00
