1886-1926 Baseball Program Collection Plus Pass (6)
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $928.00
Collection of five different very striking and unusual programs/scorecards, dating from 1886 to 1926, plus a 1911 Cubs game pass. 1) Circa 1908 Cubs scorecard. This single-page (double-side printing) unscored card (5.5 x 9 inches) features a portrait of Frank Chance on a Cubs pennant. Ex. 2) 1911 Pittsburgh regular season program. Neatly scored in pencil, this appears to be a game played on September 18th. Mathewson went the distance in defeating the Pirates, 7-2. The program is quarter-folded with a short tear at the cover's right edge. Technically Good, but very clean and rare, with portraits of many Pirates players inside, including Honus Wagner and Fred Clarke. 3) 1886 American Association scorecard. With preprinted lineups for Pittsburgh and the Athletics of Philadelphia. This is a fold-over scorecard (7.5 x 9.5 inches). It is unscored. Lineups include Hall of Famers Pud Galvin and Wilbert Robinson (who at this time was a rookie). Ex. 4) Circa 1910/1920 era, generic scorecard. This scorecard's cover opens to a very striking generic baseball scene, with advertising for its sponsor, the Diamond Brand Sporting Goods Co. of Bamberg, S.C. Vg-Ex. 5) 1926 regular season Cubs program. This very substantial 36-page program scores a Cubs home game against the Giants played on July 18th at Wrigley Field. It is partially scored in pencil. A small portrait of Bill Veeck appears on the cover. Vg-Ex/Ex. 6) 1911 Chicago Cubs game pass (4.25 x 2.5 inches). Handsomely designed, "bearing" images of the lovable bruins on either side. A gallery of famed names from the franchise's heritage, as well as celebrities of the game in general adorn the perimeter. On the reverse, there appears a team photo of the Cubs which is captioned "Chicago Champions," acknowledging their pennant victory of 1910. Near Mint. This is a very interesting collection of six high-quality vintage quality items. Total 6 items. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $928.00
