1915 Boston Red Sox World Series Program

Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $3,259

1915 World Series program issued at Boston. The attractive cover design of the 1915 Boston World Series program features individual portrait photos of the respective owners and managers for both Boston and Philadelphia (Joseph Lanin and William Carrigan for Boston and W. F. Baker and Pat Moran for Philadelphia). The interior pages include separate team photographs of Boston and Philadelphia, while a second Red Sox team photo appears on the back cover as part of an advertisement for Stag Brand Sweaters (Babe Ruth is included in each team photo). The program is not scored. This classic early World Series program is especially significant as 1915 marked the first World Series appearance by Babe Ruth. Boston eventually defeated the Phillies in five games. The twelve-page program (7 x 10.375 inches) has a light vertical fold and a few tiny areas of discoloration on the front cover. A few minor creases and a tiny edge tear are evident on the back cover. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $3,259
