1927 New York Yankees (vs. Pirates) World Series Program
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $2,133
The 1927 World Series program at New York is one of the most impressive and highly prized of all items relating to baseball's most legendary team. Extremely substantial twenty-page large-format program issued for Game 3 of the 1927 World Series between the Yankees and Pirates at Yankee Stadium. The 1927 World Series program has a very broad collecting appeal and is universally regarded as one of the most desirable of all World Series programs. The cover features large portrait images of each club's respective manager, Miller Huggins and Owen Bush, while the interior pages include photos of league and team officials, as well as portraits of twenty-five members of both the Yankees and Pirates. Published by Harry M. Stevens. The preprinted lineups include Ruth, Gehrig, Lazzeri, Meusel, Combs, and Pennock for New York, and P. Waner, L. Waner, and Traynor for Pittsburgh. The program is partially scored in pencil for Game 3 (Pennock and Meadows are checked off as the starting pitchers) in which the Yankees defeated the Pirates by a score of 8-1. Ruth, fittingly, hit the first home run of the Series in Game 3, with his seventh-inning blast duly noted on the score sheet. The Yankees, bolstered by a powerful and legendary lineup, which will forever be known as "Murderers' Row," swept the Pirates in the 1927 World Series, thus cementing their reputation as the greatest team of all time. The program (9.25 x 11 inches) is perfectly flat and displays just modest wear to the covers and a tiny corner crease on the front, as well as light wear to the spine. The pages remain clean and bright. In outstanding Very Good to Excellent condition overall. This is an extremely attractive example of one of the great classics of all World Series programs. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $2,133
