The 1912 Red Sox Cash Out

In 1912, the Boston Red Sox beat the New York Giants in a thrilling eight game World Series. (Game 2 was called in the eleventh inning due to darkness.) It was baseball’s first truly exciting World Series. (The first World Series was in 1903).

Immediately following the final game, manager Garland "Jake" Stahl was given a check in the amount of $88,543.44, the winner's share to be split among his victorious team.

This is the check. The next day, the Boston Globe published a picture of it.
