This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Chicago finished first in the National League for the first time since 1918, thanks to the bats of Hack Wilson and Kiki Cuyler. The 1929 World Series opened with one of the biggest gambles in Series history as Connie Mack sent the seldom-used Howard Ehmke to face the Cubs. The bet paid off, and Ehmke struck out a then-record 13 batters in a complete game win. The game set the tone for the rest of the World Series, and Philadelphia won the Championship going away, 4 games to 1. Offered is a 1929 Chicago Cubs World Series program boasting vibrantly illustrated front and back covers with the original gold-braided tassel binding completely intact. The program - boldly scored in pencil for Game 1 - has a vertical pocket fold, is tightly bound and displays quite nicely. Excellent condition.
