World Series Programs Of Yesteryear
After watching the St. Louis Cardinals win a very exciting World Series last night, I was motivated to find all the WS programs I've acquired through the years. I was lucky enough to attend one of the classic WS games of the modern era, Game 6 of the 1985 Series between my beloved favorite team from childhood the Kansas City Royals and their neighbors from the east side of the state, the aforementioned Cardinals. The Royals came back from the brink of elimination by the aid of a bad call at first by the immortal Don Dekinger. Although that was a bad call, the Royals still had to finish out the Redbirds in that game and then in Game 7, which they won handily. My mom took me through free tickets she got through her work. They were pretty amazing seats, lower level behind the third base dugout about three rows from the top of the section. They cost a whopping $30. I shudder to think what those seats would cost now.
