Description

Presented is a very interesting assemblage of vintage baseball ephemera with each piece corresponding to a significant baseball event. The group contains eight programs/scorecards and two ticket stubs. Included are 1.) Cincinnati Reds scorecard (VG, scored, loose center page) from September 18, 1939, which was the day the Reds clinched the NL pennant; 2.) (4) relics from Ewell Blackwell’s near back-to-back no-hitters in June 1947, when Blackwell came within two outs of matching Johnny Vander Meer’s feat. Included are a ticket stub to the second game (June 22, 1947 against Brooklyn, FR) plus one scorecard from Blackwell’s no-hitter on June 18, 1947 (VG, scored) and two scorecards from the near no-hitter on June 22, 1947 (EX, VG with both scored); 3.) 1947 Brooklyn Dodgers Gameday scorecard from Jackie Robinson Day (September 23), which features a centerfold crease and very light pencil markings in the first inning only (VG); 4.) two Phillies/Dodgers scorecards from September 1950 when Newcombe pitched both ends of a doubleheader (both EX, beautifully scored); 5.) Gameday program (EX-MT, unscored) and ticket stub (VG-EX) to the April 30, 1952 game at Fenway Park. In his final at-bat before leaving to fight in the Korean War, Ted Williams hits a game winning two-run home run to beat Dizzy Trout and the Tigers; it was Williams’ only homerun of the 1952 season. Fittingly, the Fenway faithful was there to celebrate Ted Williams' Day.
