    1932 World Series - Yankees vs. Cubs - Game 2 Program, Babe Ruth's Final WS Game at Yankee Stadium. A stunning thirteen Hall of Famers trotted onto the well-worn Yankee Stadium grass on September 29th, 1932 such a display of grandeur and power would only seem fitting years after the game occurred as it ending up being the final World Series game at Yankee Stadium for none other than George Herman "Babe" Ruth.

    Chicago took an early lead off Lefty Gomez, but New York's Gehrig and Dickey would would put New York ahead for good in the bottom of the first. Fast forward to the bottom of the seventh inning with the Bambino stepping to the plate for what would be his final World Series appearance in the "House that Ruth Built". Though he could not muster another majestic blast, the Babe laced a single off Cubs hurler Lon Warneke. A game later he would add to his already tremendous legend, allegedly calling his shot off Charlie Root.

    The original Game 2 program/scorecard exhibits moderate wear with some light staining on the cover and possible tape repairs on the spine. A few interior pages show some graphite markings and minimal paper loss. The scorecard portion is only partially filled out, but Billy Herman's double to lead off the game is enough to narrow the date it was distributed to the second game of the Series.
