In the storied lore of the Brooklyn Dodgers, this 1920 World Series program is a rare and significant survivor. Issued at Ebbets Field on October 7 for Game 3, this 12-page publication features a color portrait of skipper Wilbert Robinson on the front cover. The scorecards feature factory printed lineups listing Hall of Famers Coveleskie, Grimes, Marquard, Sewell, Speaker and Wheat. The scorecard page is detached but present and though the guide has minor spine fissures and lower right corner tears, it presents nicer than one might expect of a program from its era.

The scoring grids are marked in pencil to reveal a 2-1 Brooklyn triumph. This was to be the franchise's last World Series victory until 1941 and the last Fall Classic home win until 1947.
