Lot 490: Cincinnati Reds - Black Sox 1919 World Series Program
Souvenir from baseball's darkest days when the Black Sox scandal cast a pall over the entire sport and threatened to destroy it. But this isn't just any souvenir. This is an official Red's souvenir score card from the World Series in 1919. That is special in and of itself. What makes this one extraordinary is its condition. You will never find one in more pristine condition. It can't be done. We have never seen one that comes within a country mile of this. The color is so vibrant on the sweater and sox on the cove, that it is astonishing. The paper, both inside and out is still snow white. A very special item. NM-MT.
