1922 World Series Program (Yankees vs Giants)
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $840
Substantial sixteen-page large-format program issued for the 1922 World Series between the Giants and Yankees. 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-two members of both the Yankees and Giants. Because both teams called the Polo Grounds home in 1922, the programs for all of the games, published by Harry M. Stevens, were identical in design. The offered example has not been scored, but he preprinted lineups include Ruth, B. Meusel, and Hoyt for the Yankees, and Frisch, Kelly, I. Meusel, and Stengel for the Giants. The Giants swept the Yankees in five games in the 1922 World Series (one game ended in a tie), but the biggest story of the Series was Ruth's performance at the plate, or more aptly, his lack of performance. The Giants limited Ruth to just two hits in the five games, with no home runs and only one RBI. The program (9.25 x 11 inches) displays partial detachment to the covers, a few minor edge tears, and the faded blue imprint of a notation on the back cover that reads "1922/Giants Yankees/World Series/Polo Grounds." (the imprint has bled through to the last four page as well). In Good to Very Good condition.
Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $840
