1921 New York Giants (vs. Yankees) Game 7 World Series Program - Original Owner Provenance!
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,778
New York Giants program from Game 7 of the 1921 World Series between the Yankees and Giants, held at the Polo Grounds on October 12th. This program is accompanied by a special provenance: it belonged to our consignor's father, who actually attended the game! While the family always knew that he attended the 1921 World Series, no one was aware that he saved the program. It was just recently discovered by the family, along with a number of other World Series programs and tickets, and, most important, a program and ticket stub from the very first game at Yankee Stadium, on April 18, 1923 (all of the other programs and ticket stubs are offered elsewhere this auction).
The cover features large portrait images of each club's respective manager, John McGraw and Miller Huggins, while the interior pages include photos of league and team officials, as well as portraits of twenty-four members of both the Yankees and Giants. Because both teams called the Polo Grounds home in 1921, the programs for all of the games, published by Harry M. Stevens, were identical in design. This program has been neatly scored in pencil for Game 7 of the series and records a 2-1 victory by the Giants. The Giants defeated the Yankees five games to three in the 1921 Fall Classic, which marked the first World Series appearance for the Yankees. The sixteen-page program (9.25 x 11 inches) displays light wear and remains in Excellent condition. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,778
