A once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire this most rare and significant pair of original line-up cards from the second game of the 1937 World Series played between the New York Yankees and the New York Giants on October 7, 1937, played at Yankee Stadium. Each 4 X 4.5 card specifies he starting line-up for each team filled in and signed by the respective Managers of each team; Joe McCarthy managing the Yankees and specifying his batting order which included Joe DiMaggio batting 3rd, Lou Gehrig in the clean up spot (batting 4th) and other notable Yankees including Bill Dickey, Tony Lazzeri and batting 9th , pitcher Red Ruffing. The Giants line-up card is made out and signed by Manager Bill Terry listing star third baseman Mel Ott batting 3rd and includes notations for two pitching changes. Each card exhibits remnants of scrapbook removal on verso with the Yankees card including special ground rules on verso. Both cards have been hand notated “World Series 1937” from this historic World Series in which the Yankees defeated the Giants 4 games to 1 to win the World Championship. The 1937 Yankees dominated the American League in what would be Lou Gehrig’s last season before the disease later named after him began to take its toll. Gehrig, young Joe DiMaggio and Bill Dickey dominated in batting at the plate and Yankee pitchers Lefty Gomez and Re Ruffing were the League’s only twenty game winners. The Yankees defeated the Giants by a score of 12 to 7 in this game and went on to win the World Championship, defeating the Giants 4 games to 1. It is unlikely that any such pair of vintage World Series line-up cards exist from the early decade of baseball’s Golden Era. Comes with a Gotta Have Rock & Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity.
