The time honored tradition of Old Timer's Day baseball games has yielded many a fine souvenir, and one fantastic example steps into the light, with this 1975 Yankees program. Quite an impressive selection of baseball Hall of Famers and stars decorate this vintage event keepsake, which is framed to dimensions of 10x13. This elderly publication is twice folded with horizontal and vertical lines crossing at center. Dated 8/2/75, this program was issued for the Yankees 29th Annual Old Timer's Day game, which of course was held at Yankees Stadium. A total of (34) autographs show average ("8-9") potency and take up nearly every inch of available blank space on the program's front cover.
