1922 New York Giants (vs. Yankees) World Series Program - Game 3
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,175
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. This program has been neatly scored in black ink for Game 3 of the series and records a 3-0 Giants victory. The 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). All of the 1920s World Series programs in this auction, this program included, are new to the hobby and originate from a noncollector whose grandfather actually attended the games. The program (9.25 x 11 inches) displays a light vertical fold (very common with World Series programs, usually as a result of being folded and carried in the back pocket), a small tear to an interior page, and a small area of surface-paper loss of little consequence (approximately the area of a dime) on the back cover, otherwise in Very Good to Excellent condition. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,175
