    Description

    1912 World Series Game 3 Program (Red Sox). Fred Snodgrass may have never had the opportunity to muff that routine flyball in the the deciding Game 8 of the 1912 World Series if Game 2 hadn't ended in a 6-6 tie after it was called by darkness after eleven innings of play. Here is the game program from that historic second contest, neatly scored by a meticulous and devoted Red Stockings fan named F.J. Caldwell (who also neatly signed his name atop the front cover, probably out of a sense of pride for being on hand for the series when his team captured its second World Series title). The Giants were led by Mathewson and Marquard while the Red Sox attack was spearheaded the outfield of Lewis, Speaker, and Hooper, and a spectacular fireballing pitcher named Smokey Joe Wood. The program exhibits relatively light toning and wear (two small border chips), considering its century-plus vintage, and remains fully intact.
