Issued at Yankee Stadium on July 6, 1941, this program hails from a twinbill in which Joe DiMaggio extended his hitting streak to 47 and 48 consecutive games. DiMaggio’s exploits, however, were an afterthought to the Monument Park ceremony in which Lou Gehrig was honored. Having passed away on June 2, Gehrig was to be honored on July 4; the two-year anniversary of his “Luckiest Man” speech, but the game was rained out that day. With covers and all (12) pages intact, the guide presents nicely with partially marked scoring grids and stray pencil marks on the front cover.
