1918 World Series Program Saved From Scrap Heap

It sat in a scrapbook for 89 years and almost didn’t survive a relative’s cleaning project, but one woman’s 1918 World Series program now rests in an appreciative collector’s home.

Ruth Bernot was on her way to becoming one of the nation’s first female dentists when she attended Game Six of the 1918 World Series. The game was historic for a number of reasons, but it’s likely she just wanted to know who was who that day in Boston.

She saved the World Series program she bought and the ticket stub. Both wound up unceremoniously stored in a book of momentos that passed down two generations before they were discovered and recently sold with proceeds benefitting a New England charity.
