Description

In the realm of sports publications, vintage stadium-issued guides serve as storytellers with period advertisements, design and player portrayals. Additionally, physical traits such as handwritten scoring, creases and compacting folds bring us back to the specific event, accurately documenting not only the on-field exploits, but the raucous crowd and stadium elements. This 1934 All-Star Game program succeeds in summoning recollections of Carl Hubbell’s spellbinding performance and rosters with a combined 29 Hall of Famers. Yet physically, the 8-page souvenir appears as though a Polo Grounds vendor had just taken your nickel and handed you a crisp program with pre-printed lineups (listing successive Hubbell victims Ruth, Gehrig, Foxx, Simmons and Cronin) and unmarked scoring grids. Save for minor separation along the spine, this one is pristine! This item has a reserve (estimated value $1500-$2000)
