The Polo Grounds in New York was the site of the second All-Star game, held on July 10, 1934, and despite the AL's 9-7 win, it is more memorable for Carl Hubbell's incredible feat of striking out Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Fox, Al Simmons and Joe Cronin, in succession. Three years later the game was played at Griffith Field in Washington, DC, with President Franklin D. Roosevelt in attendance, watching the AL take an 8-3 victory. The 1934 scorecard in this lot is a two-page, unscored bootleg version and pictures Cronin and Bill Terry on the front. With several creases, it is only in GD condition. The 1937 program is the official version and is also unscored. Water damage to the covers and contents but still intact, FR condition.
