    Description

    COLLECTION OF NEW YORK GIANTS PROGRAMS. Upon the passing of a very forceful John McGraw, the New York Giants struggled to maintain customer enthusiasm in Gotham.  The Yankees methodically continued as winners, while the endearing Dodgers charmed the packed houses of Ebbets.  Nonetheless, the Giants of Coogan's Bluff were a perennial force in the National League.  In celebration of that venerable franchise, we offer this collection of nine different (plus one duplicate) regular season programs from the era leading to their migration to San Francisco.  Most of these are unscored and in splendsid condition.  Specifically included are:  1944 (vs. Bkl., scored) EX/MT; 1945 (vs. Chi., partial separation at spine) EX+; 1946 (vs. Phil.) EX/MT; 1947 (vs. St. L.) EX/MT; 1950 (vs. Bkl.) EX/MT; 1950 (vs. St. L., very mild vertical fold) EX+; 1951 (vs. Bost.) EX/MT; 1952 (vs. Pgh.) NM; 1953 (vs. Phil.) EX; and 1957 (vs. Bkl.) EX/MT.  Additional shipping cost may apply.
