1919 Brooklyn Dodgers "Peace Souvenir" Program

Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $415

Rare 1919 "Peace Souvenir" program issued by the Brooklyn Dodgers. The special eight-page program was specially produced to honor all of the members of the Brooklyn Dodgers organization, both players and executives, who served in the military during World War I. All of the members are pictured (many in their respective military uniforms), and the rear cover unfolds to reveal a large team photo of the 1919 Brooklyn club. Included among the individual portrait images are Burleigh Grimes (pictured in his sailor's uniform), Zack Wheat, Wilbert Robinson, and Rube Marquard (pictured in his sailor's uniform). Also included is a two-page map of New York City that features instructions on how to get to Ebbets Field. Both covers are detached, but present. All of the pages remain bound by the original staples, which display oxidation. Minor surface wear and tiny age tears affect both the front and back covers. In Good condition overall, but still an attractive display piece, extremely rare, and historically very significant. Reserve $100. Estimate $200/$300. SOLD FOR $415
