1963 World Series Program

Keeping with the theme, "sports collectables received from family members" is this great old program. My grandfather drove down to Yankee Stadium from Toronto and attended a 1963 series game. It would have either been Oct. 2nd or 3rd of '63 as the Yankees were swept by the Dodgers. He would have been one of over 66,000 attendees to either game, and saw some of the greatest stars of the.
In this series the Dodgers pitching of Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale et al dominated the Yankee sluggers, Elston Howard, Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. The Bronx Bombers scored only 4 runs in the 4 games, one of the lowest totals ever in a World Series.
