Description


Beautiful official program and score card for the game between the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals on June 26, 1906, 20 pages, 6 x 9, featuring a colorful cover design with a portrait of Cubs manager and first baseman Frank Chance. The scorecard inside is printed with the lineups of both teams—featuring Hall of Fame names like "Chance" [replaced for this game by Solly Hofman], "Tinker," and "Evers" for the Cubs and "Beckley" for the Cardinals—and has been scored in pencil to denote Orval Overall's 1-0 shutout victory over St. Louis's Buster Brown. In Excellent overall condition. The Cubs would go on to achieve an incredible record of 116-36 on the season (the highest winning percentage in modern MLB history) to win the National League pennant, but were defeated by the 'hitless wonder' Chicago White Sox in the World Series. A gorgeous and well-preserved piece, made all the more desirable by its trove of quaint period advertising including a color ad for Cracker Jack on the cover.
