Description

As good as it gets in the realm of key matchups, the 1926 World Series pitted skippers Miller Huggins and Rogers Hornsby and culminated with potential tying run Babe Ruth gunned down on an attempted steal with Pete Alexander on the hill and Lou Gehrig in the on-deck circle. This program was issued in the Bronx during that seven-game showdown. The 12-page guide features score grids marked for Game 6 according to the Les Bell seventh-inning home run noted in pencil. Tape has been used to keep both the front and reverse covers intact and the pages are no longer attached to the binding (original staples missing), but this is still a marvelous World Series collectible. The program has a vertical fold through the entire publication; it features bold team photograph pages of both the St. Louis Cardinals and the New York Yankees. The Yankee photo page features a Babe Ruth photo directly in the center covered by a clubhouse Ruth etching.
