    Description

    1924 Washington Senators vs. New York Giants World Series Program. Although "The Big Train" Walter Johnson still stands today as one of the top three pitchers to ever touch a baseball, his only encounter with the World Series was almost a letdown. In 1924, Johnson drew two starts against the New York Giants and lost both games. However, the Senators rallied to tie the series at 3-3 and Johnson was called in to pitch in relief in Game Seven. Throwing in innings nine through twelve, Johnson pitched four shutout innings and took home the win, as well as the championship trophy.

    The offered lot is a stellar example of a World Series program from this match-up. Although a simple 7x10" black and white design, the interior is overflowing with three image composite photographs of every Senators player, as well as an unused scorecard. Interestingly, the simplicity of the program also means that it is free of any advertising, which normally takes center stage in these programs. Scorecard is in VG-EX condition.
