1929 World Series Program

The Chicago Cubs captured the National League pennant in 1929, going 98-54 but later losing to the Philadelphia Athletics in the World Series four games to one. Here is the Wrigley Field variety of the 1929 World Series program. Measuring 6" x 9" and has a unique and beautiful Art Deco design with decorative binding tassel.

The covers and pages below are considered one of the most beautiful programs ever.

The 1929 Cubs had their own version of Murderers Row in Rogers Hornsby, Hack Wilson, Kiki Cuyler and Riggs Stephenson.
