Classic October 2008
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
With their measly three hits, the American League All-Stars of 1940 conceded a dearly coveted win for the Senior Circuit. It was an unlikely hero who sparked the National League that day. The marginal Max West (selected from the Boston Braves) clouted a three-run homer in the first inning, which proved to be more than adequate for victory, as the Americans suffered a whitewashing. West, incidentally, suffered a game-ending injury shortly thereafter, and that home run amounted to his only at-bat in All-Star competition. The game was staged in Sportsman's Park, St. Louis, and from that tilt we offer this program. It's unscored, and this one has a couple moderate creases reducing it to about Good condition. However, the pages are secure and there are no tears, flagrant blemishes or ancillary writings to be found.
