Grouping of six Boston National League official programs dating between 1941 and 1951.  Collection includes the following:  1) 1941 Official Boston Bees Scorecard: Unscored program for a game against the Philadelphia Phillies.  Hall of Famers listed include Earl Averill, Rick Ferrell, and Chuck Klein.  EX condition.  2) 1942 Boston Braves Official Scorecard: August 8, 1942 vs. Brooklyn Dodgers, a 2-0 Braves victory, and pitching duel between Whit Wyatt and Manny Salvo.  It is likely that the scorecard was signed in pencil by second baseman Sibby Sisti.  Apparent EX/MT condition, though the game date has been written in small lettering in pencil on the cover. 3) 1943 Boston Braves Official Scorecard: July 16 vs.  Brooklyn, a 3-2 Braves victory on a walkoff triple by Boston first baseman Johnny McCarthy.  The Brooklyn lineup included aging Hall of Famers Arky Vaughan, Paul Waner and Billy Herman.  EX condition, game date written in pencil on the cover.  4) 1945 Boston Braves Official Scorecard: Unscored game between the Braves and Pittsburgh Pirates.  Both team rosters are light, Al Lopez listed as a catcher and Lloyd Waner on the Pittsburgh rosters, but the war had clearly decimated both rosters.  VG condition with surface staining on the cover, otherwise strong throughout.  5) 1948 Boston Braves Official Scorecard: June 22 vs. St. Louis Cardinals, a 5-2 Cardinals win behind an explosive 5-for-5 offensive effort by Stan Musial, who drive in two runs.  Harry Breechen pitched a complete game for St. Louis.  Game is neatly scored and dated inside, otherwise EX/MT.  6) 1951 Boston Braves Official Scorecard: Unscored game against the New York Giants.  Hall of Famers Warren Spahn, Monte Irvin and a rookie named Willie Mays appear on the team rosters.  VG/EX condition with some wear to the cover and wrinkling from long-ago rolling.  Six programs total.
