Description



During their century of torment, the Chicago Cubs have won the National League pennant seven times only to have their collective efforts prove futile in the Fall Classic. This ten-page 1929 World Series program memorializes the agony of Chicago’s north side during their battle against Connie Mack and the Philadelphia Athletics. The program is from Game 2 with the A's winning in a rout, 9-3. This program documents the players from these squads while also containing an unmarked scorecard with a newspaper box score from a local paper glued to the publication. The inner-pages are moderately rounded and feature light creasing. Despite a wavy appearance, the inner pages and their player captions are vibrant and unobstructed. The tri-color cover reveals a moderate vertical crease through the body the original twine binding. Detailing players such as Rogers Hornsby, KiKi Cuyler, Al Simmons, Jimmie Foxx and Lefty Grove, this scarce program and pin is an excellent depiction of an earlier World Series.
