1928 World Series Program Cardinals @ Yankees - Ruth, Gehrig Murderers Row 4-0 For Sale
VINTAGE ORIGINAL RARE!CLASSIC OFFICIAL 1928 WORLD SERIES PROGRAM ST. LOUIS CARDINALS at NEW YORK YANKEES – LOU GEHRIG and BABE RUTH LEAD THE “CHARGE” – SETTLE THE SCORE WITH CARDINALS!!
Thissale is for a wonderful, very rare, early, and desirable 1928 WORLD SERIES PROGRAM ST. LOUIS CARDINALS at NEW YORK YANKEES. This classic program is missing from most collections. YANKEES won 4 games to 0 for second straight World's Series sweep, first time this had been done. They had also swept the Pirates in 1927. Program is unscored for game at YANKEE STADIUM. Only year for ornate cover style used by Yankees in Series programs. Last year for Yanks Manager Miller Huggins who would pass away in 1929.
Ironic Old Gold Cigarette ad in center near scorecard featuring Babe Ruth endorsement. Babe would sadly pass away in 20 years from throat cancer.
Like most, Game 3 was also loaded with "fireworks", Oct. 7, Tom Zachary won over Jesse Haines, Yanks 7-3 before 39,602.Lou Gehrig rocketed two homers in this game and drove in as many runs by himself as the entire Cardinals team combined in the Series. He batted .545 with 4 homers and 9 RBI.
Babe Ruth hit .625 (10 for 16, with 3 HRs, all in Game 4 and 4 RBI) as the Yankees demolished their opponents by a combined score of 27 to 10, atoning for 1926 Series. Like 1926, Ruth belted three home run balls over the right field pavilion at Sportsman's Park in Game 4 and Gehrig smashed one more. Unlike 1926, this was also the final game of the Series and served as a punctuation mark on the Yankees' dominance.
This is a great piece of rare historic sports memorabilia and well worth offerding on. Loaded with pictures, profiles, and statistics of players on the team.
