1924 Washington Senators and 1924 New York Giants World Series Programs (2)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $356

Set of two1924 World Series programs, one issued at New York, and one issued at Washington. 1) The cover of the majestically designed Giants program features portraits of Hall of Fame managers John McGraw and Bucky Harris. The interior pages include composite photographs of each team. The fourteen-page program (9.245 x 11 inches) is scored, but it is not clear for which game. The covers were once detached and have been reapplied with clear tape. The original staples have also been removed and new staples now bind the pages. The covers display numerous tears (paper loss). Fair condition. 2) The 1924 Washington World Series program, fittingly, features Manager Harris shaking hands with President Coolidge. What this thirty-two page program lacks in color and excitement on the cover is at least in part made up for by its page after page of interior photographs. The Senators captured their only World Championship in franchise history in 1924, with Walter Johnson sealing the series with a victory in Game 7. The program (10 x 7 inches), which is not scored, displays a vertical fold, minor edge tears, and tape reinforcement at the spine. Good condition. Total: 2 programs.
Reserve $200. Estimate $500++. SOLD FOR $356
