This desirable, 16-page program features a small circular portrait of Pirates President Barney Dreyfuss on the cover, and portraits of the Pirate players, as well as numerous advertisements (including one for Honus Wagner Sporting Goods) on the inside pages. The Pirates prevailed over Walter Johnson's Senators 4-3 in the tightly contested seven game series, with the "Big Train" losing the deciding game 9-7 in a complete game pounding, giving up 15 hits in Pittsburgh's comeback victory. As a cost cutting measure Pittsburgh produced the 1925 World Series programs on thin cheap stock, not unlike their regular season programs, and consequently very few have survived in collectible condition. The offered program has withstood most of the ravages of time and is one of the nicest examples we have ever offered, with clean pages and a tight spine. Excellent condition.
