An overshadowed extra-innings "walk off" home run, the defensive wizardry of Willie Mays' "The Catch" and a heroic pitching effort from Bob Lemon were witnessed by the offered 1954 World Series Game 1 program. The 48-page publication was neatly scored by the original owner in blue ink. Exhibits strong visual features with intense colors, relatively crisp interior pages and tight staple binding. Also present is a dated 9/30/54 New York Daily News front and back cover (presents EX-MT) where Dusty Rhodes, not Willie Mays was the cover star.
