In 1933, the brainchild of the Chicago Tribune's Arch Ward came to fruition when the first ever All Star game was played. The contest, pitting the best players of both the National and American Leagues, was held in Comiskey Park on July 6, 1933 as part of Chicago's World's Fair, and was supposed to be a one-time event. The lineups for the AL's 4-2 victory included future Hall-of-Famers such as Frankie Frisch, Lefty Grove, Carl Hubbell, Lou Gehrig, Lefty Gomez and Charlie Gehringer. The star power was evident in the dugouts as well with John McGraw and Connie Mack leading the two teams. This program is a very nice example and is unscored. Slight creases at the tips of the right hand corners and some slight discoloration. Technically VG-EX but presents better.
