The 1927 Yankees are arguably the greatest ballclub in the history of the sport, boasting the incomparable sluggers Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig along with a pitching staff led by the Hall of Fame tandem of Herb Pennock and Waite Hoyt. The Yankees rolled over Junior Circuit competition in 1927 thanks to their “Murderer’s Row” lineup, winning 110 games as Babe Ruth broke his own Major League record by hitting 60 home runs. The Yankees fielded six Hall of Famers in 1927, not counting their fiery, 5’6” manager Miller Huggins.

The World Series, played against the Pittsburgh Pirates, went about as well as one would expect, with the Yankees dominating their National League opponents in a four-game series sweep. The Babe hit .400 in the World Series, adding two homers, seven RBI, and a 1.271 OPS. Gehrig, who drove in 173 runs in the regular season, hit .308 with four RBI, two doubles, and two triples in the Fall Classic.

Offered here is scored program from the 1927 World Series. Miller Huggins and the Pirates manager Owen J. Bush, a standout player for the Detroit Tigers in the deadball era, are featured on the cover. Based on the scoring, this program dates to the clinching Game 4 won by the Yankees 4-3 on a walk-off wild-pitch with Johnny Miljus pitching and Tony Lazzeri at the plate. Earle Combs scored the winning run. The back cover has an advertisement for Lucky Strike cigarettes featuring Broadway legend and impresario Florenz Ziegfield. The program is in excellent condition with all of the pages full intact. There is minor edge wear and other marks, along with a slight center fold.
