    Description

    1917 World Series Program (New York). With the United States entering the fray of what would come to be known as World War I, just a week before the start of the 1917 Major League season, patriotic fervor was at an all-time high when the New York Giants and Chicago White Sox faced off in that year's World Series. Presented is the program sold at the Polo Grounds contests, featuring President Woodrow Wilson on the cover. This Series would prove to be the last won by the Chicago White Sox until 2005, a "curse" many attribute to the sin of the 1919 Black Sox scandal.

    This offering is scored to Game 4 - a 5-0 Giants win. The cover was once detached but has been professionally restored.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $2,000 - up.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
