1895 New York Giants (vs. Pittsburgh) Program
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,067
This eight-page program, issued for a National League game between the New York Giants and Pittsburgh Pirates at the Polo Grounds, is noted not just for its rarity but also for the extraordinary display value of its beautifully illustrated cover design featuring a colorful game-in-progress scene. The preprinted lineups include Tiernan, Van Haltren, Davis, Doyle, Burns, Farrell, and either Clark or Rusie (as pitcher) for New York, and Donovan, Smith, Beckley, Stenzel, and Stuart for Pittsburgh. The program (6.25 x 9.25 inches), which is not scored, displays a vertical fold, along the top length of which there is a small tear (1.5 inches) that affects both covers and each interior page. Technically in Very Good condition overall, but closer to Excellent in appearance, and outstanding for display! Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,067
