The 1908 World Series matched the defending champion Chicago Cubs against the Detroit Tigers in a rematch of the 1907 Series. In this first-ever rematch of this young event, the Cubs won in five games for their second consecutive World Series title. The 1908 World Series was significant for being the last World Series championship the Cubs would win until the 2016 World Series (108 years later). One only a few dozen known surviving examples, this is the only game 3 program we have ever encountered anywhere in the hobby. We surmise that this is likely due to game 3 being the lone loss for the Cubbies that series, at home no less, and it would stand that the Chicago faithful weren’t keen on keeping a memento from that disheartening game that saw the Cubs fall 8-3 against a Ty Cobb led Tigers team. The offered relic is sure to fill a void in all but the most complete collections and is a can’t miss opportunity for any World Series program collector. While extremely fragile, with the first two pages loose and a heavy vertical crease as well as paper loss along the edges and back cover, this surviving example displays wonderfully and offers great eye-appeal. There are a few pencil notations on the interior pages, and it has been completely scored. If you need one of these for your collection don’t miss out as you may not have another opportunity for many years to come.
