This sale is for a very early, very nice, terrific, and tough 1941 ALL STAR GAME BASEBALL PROGRAM at DETROIT hosted by the TIGERS. All original vintage Program from July 8, 1941. A. L. won this 9th All Star Game, 7-5 before crowd of 54,674 at Briggs Stadium (Elmer Smith over Claude Passeau).

TED WILLIAMS' HOMER DECIDES 7-5 GAME; Home run with two on, two out in last of ninth wins for American League. Arky Vaughan was the N.L. hero hitting two homers in the 7th and 8th innings for 4 runs, giving the N.L. a late 5-2 lead.
Coming up with a last-minute electrifying charge that floored the N.L. at the very moment triumph seemed within grasp, the American League snatched victory from defeat. Scoring four runs in the last half of the ninth inning, the A.L. overcame the National League, 7 to 5 in the ninth annual All-Star game.
The 1941 All-Star Game yielded what is considered to be one of the most electrifying homers in All-Star history. It was launched by one of the most popular and charismatic hitters of all time, Ted Williams. Playing in his second All-Star Game, he was on his way to a .406 season batting average and at the All-Star break, he was hitting .405.
One of the higher scoring All-Star games to date, this game showcased great pitching, strong hitting and a momentous conclusion. The American League was trailing 5-3 in the bottom of the ninth and Claude Passeau pitching. Passeau retired the first batter. Then Ken Keltner came in as a pinch hitter and bounced a single off shortstop Eddie Miller's glove. Joe Gordon singled and Cecil Travis drew a walk, loading the bases for Joe DiMaggio with Ted Williams on deck. DiMaggio hit a certain double-play ball sharply to Miller, who threw to second baseman Billy Herman. Herman's throw to first was wide, enabling DiMaggio to reach first on a forceout and Keltner to score. Williams batted next and sent a fastball into the upper right-field stands and turned a 5-4 National League lead into a 7-5 American League win.
