1958 World Series Program New York Yankees Vs Milwaukee Braves Baseball:
Rare and wonderful, original 1958 Baseball World Series Program being the Yankee Stadium version featuring an array of Pennant Flags each marked with the year that the Yankees appeared in the World Series and a generic Yankee player holding aloft a Pennant marked "1958". This outstanding 1958 World Series Program measures approx. 8 1/2" by 11 3/4" and contains 48 pages plus its original, illustrated covers. The included scorecard is scored for Game 4 of the Series which the Milwaukee Braves won by a score of 4 to 0 - a 2 hit gem hurled by Warren Spahn that gave the Braves what appeared to be an insurmountable 3 games to 1 lead in the Series. The Yanks however would storm back and take the series from the defending Champion Braves who had beat the Yankees in World Series a year before.
The 1958 World Series was a rematch of the 1957 Series, with the New York Yankees beating the defending champion Milwaukee Braves in seven games for their 18th title, and their seventh in 10 years. With that victory, the Yankees became only the second team in Major League Baseball history to come back from a 3–1 deficit to win a best-of-seven World Series; the first was the 1925 Pittsburgh Pirates. (The 1903 Boston Red Sox came back from a 3–1 deficit in a best-of-nine affair.) Both teams would meet again in the fall classic thirty-eight years later—by that time, the Braves had moved to Atlanta.
The day that this Program was scored Warren Spahn was at his much-needed best, winning Game 4, 3–0, on a two-hit shutout over Yankee ace Whitey Ford. Yankee left-fielder, Norm Siebern (playing for the injured Elston Howard), had trouble fielding with the afternoon sun blazing, losing fly balls in the sixth and eighth innings accounting for two Milwaukee runs. It was a much-heralded pitching duel until the top of the sixth when Red Schoendienst led off tripling into deep left-center the ball slicing between "The Mick" in center and Siebern in left. Tony Kubek, who had 28 errors during the season, let a Johnny Logan grounder slip through his legs for an error letting in the game's first run. In the seventh, Spahn blooped a single scoring Andy Pafko who had just doubled to right. In the eighth, Johnny Logan was credited with a ground-rule double when Siebern lost a flyball in the sun. Eddie Mathews followed with another double scoring Logan with the game's final run. Up three games to one, the Milwaukee Braves were on the cusp of back-to-back championships, but the indomitable New Yorkers would show that they had some fight left in them.
This rare and wonderful, 1958 Yankee Stadium World Series Program is in very good, original condition. The Program is complete and generally clean and crisp with light edge wear to the covers only. The interior pages are well preserved - clean and crisp with light edge wear only to some of the pages. As stated above, the Program is scored and was certainly purchased at Game 4 of the Series in Yankee Stadium.

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:
The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
