Red Sox right-hander Hugh Bedient got the best of Christy Mathewson in Game 5, giving up just 3 hits in a 2-1 Boston victory. These historic programs, hailing from that inaugural Fenway season and second Red Sox championship, regularly command prices in the thousands, with the record amount of nearly $6,000 having been paid in a 2013 auction. Measuring 10x7, the "Souvenir Biography and Score Book" showcases a great illustrated cover and full-length interior player photos of Wood, Yerkes, Wagner, Thomas, Stahl, Speaker, Pape, O'Brien, Nunamaker, Lewis, Krug, Hall, Hooper, Gardner, Henriksen, Engle, Carrigan, Cady, Collins, Bradley, Bedient and Ball. It's neatly scored in pencil for 10/12/12, with a portion torn off and missing for the Red Sox scoring page. Otherwise, GD condition overall due to routine wear from the scoring process and some consistent cover toning.
