1926 Tigers vs. Athletics Program w/Ticket Stub (Cobb vs. Foxx)
Out of stock
Folks got their money’s worth this day as a veritable parade of diamond immortals plied their wares. It was 1926 and the Detroits hosted the Mackmen on June 19th. The hometown nine downed the Athletics, 5-3 (doing so against the invincible Lefty Grove). Anyhow, this program was distributed for the contest, and it’s neatly scored in pencil through its entirety. In the pre-printed lineup, we thrill to the appearance of Ty Cobb (who went 2-4), Harry Heilmann, Mickey Cochrane, Al Simmons and Jimmie Foxx. (Rookie Charlie Gehringer is listed, but he was benched for this game.) Anyhow, this is a very presentable 1920s program, one which is about VG/EX – a little roughing at the edges, but acceptably clean and firmly bound. Attending is a vintage Detroit Tigers ticket stub (which may, or may not, be pertinent to this game; reference is made that the “War Tax [is] Paid,” suggesting that it might date to the pre-1920s).
