Today we are happy to offer a vintage 1957 Boston Red Sox program. This piece was the official program and score card for their game at Fenway Park against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday, June 30th. It is not written in/score card section remains blank. Lots of great old advertising aimed at men: liquor, cigarettes, tobacco, watches, gasoline, but also fun ads for Hood Ice Cream, Beech-Nut gum, Table Talk Pies, Armour Franks, and Schrafft’s Peppermint Patties and Caramallow Bars. An interesting piece toward the back of the program are the Air Raid Instructions. Starting line up for the Sox: Piersall, Klaus, Williams, Vernon/Zauchin, Jensen, Malzone, Lepcio, White/Daley, Sisler/Nixon/Sullivan/Brewer. Manager was Mike Higgins. For Detroit: Kueen, Maxwell, Tuttle, Kline, Osborne, Wilson, Bertoia, Bolling, Larry/Bunning/Hoeft/Maas. What a fun addition to a Red Sox collection – and a great gift for the fan! In very good vintage condition. Unmarked/unscored. First inside page was not cut properly and sticks out on the bottom right. Two small rips on the back cover. Usual slight discoloration and soiling from age. Fresh to the market from an old Rhode Island estate!
