Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,080
The extremely colorful cover to this four-page program pictures the "Champion Base Ball Club of the United States" pennant at the top, while the text makes note of the club’s three consecutive pennants between the years 1894 and 1896, and its two consecutive Temple Cup victories in 1896 and 1897. The beautiful design includes an image of the Temple Cup pictured in the center. Issued for a game against the eventual National League champion Boston Beaneaters, the preprinted lineups include McGraw, Keeler, Jennings, Kelley, and Robinson for Baltimore, and Hamilton, Tenney, Long, Duffy, Collins, Stahl, and Nichols for Boston. Neatly scored in pencil to record a 3-2 Baltimore win. Research indicates that the only 3-2 Baltimore home victory over Boston in 1898 occurred on April 23rd. The program (6.5 x 9.5 inches) displays two horizontal folds, partial separation of both covers along the spine, and light creases. In Very Good condition overall. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,080
