Description

    Very Rare First Year 1928/29 Boston Gardens Official Program! Designer Tex Rickard built this famous arena with boxing specifically in mind, believing every seat should be close enough to the action to see "the sweat on the boxers' brows." This intimate architecture provided Boston teams with the greatest home court/rink advantage in sports, and certainly played some role in bringing no fewer than seven Stanley Cup Finals and nineteen NBA Finals to center stage. This beloved stadium saw witness to sixty-seven years of sports history. The lengthy program, issued for the entirety of the 1928-29 athletic season, has the original special insert at center for a hockey game on February 16, 1929 between Harvard and Dartmouth. The program shows some expected corner and spine wear but not to excess, it remains complete and tightly bound with its original staples. There are vertical creases affect every page. A tremendously rare and historically important publication and a must-have collectible for the passionate Boston fan.
