1912 New York Giants (vs Red Sox) World Series Program

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,778

New York Giants program issued for the 1912 World Series against the Boston Red Sox. The colorful cover which makes this program so ideal for display features a beautiful illustration of Giants manager John McGraw displaying a scroll with the Giants' record from 1903 to 1912, and a small inset photo of team president John T. Brush. The sixteen interior pages include team photos of both the Giants and Red Sox, photos of Giants team executives, photos of both American and National League executives, and even a full-page political advertisement for the Democratic Presidential ticket of Woodrow Wilson and Thomas Marshall. Neatly scored in pencil to record Boston's 4-3 victory in Game 1. Boston eventually defeated the Giants in eight games (one game ended in a tie), with the Series regarded by many historians as one of the most exciting ever played. The victory also marked the first of Boston's four World Championships during the decade. The 1912 Giants World Series program is far rarer than its Boston counterpart, and this is only the second we have offered in the past ten years. Interestingly, this program once resided in the Culver Pictures archive, as noted by two different Culver Pictures proprietary stamps and a Culver Pictures deaccession stamp on the back cover. The program (9 x 11 inches) displays a light vertical fold and minor edge tears to each cover. Without regard to the three Culver stamps on the reverse, the program is in Very Good condition overall. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,778
