If World Series tickets were little out of your price range, a program from this year’s historic encounter between two championship starved franchises is probably not. After the Cubs knocked off the Dodgers in the NLCS, the finishing touches were applied to the 2016 World Series program that was available for sale in both teams’ home parks and also across the country.
There are three different versions; one with a Cubs-themed cover sold at Wrigley Field, another for Cleveland with an excited Andrew Miller on the front and a third that features both teams that is being sold at newsstands nationwide and online.
The program is typically around 250 pages and includes not only the traditional roster and scorecard but also numerous features and stats. The basic content is the same for all three but the two localized versions do have some exclusive content relevant to each team.
With the Cubs paying their first visit since programs cost a quarter and the Tribe still without a title since the 1948 showdown, it’ll likely be the most purchased set of Series programs of all-time. In fact, some online shops are sold out.
