1915 Newark (vs. St. Louis) Federal League Program and Ticket Stub
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $948
1915 Newark Peps program and ticket stub from the short-lived Federal League (1914-1915). Federal League programs are extremely rare and are noted for their colorful, attractively designed covers which are ideal for display. The offered example is no exception and features a beautiful cover illustration of two generic ballplayers above an advertisement for Haussling’s Pure Ginger Ale. This twelve-page program was issued for a May 2nd doubleheader against the St. Louis Terriers. The preprinted lineups include McKechnie, Rousch, and LaPorte for Newark, and Tobin, Bridwell, Drake, Borton, and Deal for St. Louis. Although the program is not scored, the names of the starting pitchers for the second game of the doubleheader are penciled in the appropriate lineup slot. The program is accompanied by a newspaper clipping (affixed to the St. Louis scoring page by means of a paper clip) that details St. Louis' sweep of the twin bill by the scores of 1-0 and 2-1, respectively. Together with a 1915 Newark Federal League ticket stub that, presumably, was issued for the same two games on May 2nd. The ticket is for a "Pavillion" seat and is labeled "Set 1 1915." The program (6 x 9 inches) has a moderate vertical fold and an area of dark toning to each of the pages on the interior that lie against the newspaper clipping. Small remnants of framing tape remain affixed to the back cover. In Very Good condition overall. The ticket stub (1.25 x 2.75 inches) displays a few of creases, as well as two small pieces of mounting tape on the reverse. In Good to Very Good condition. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $948
