The 1912 Red Sox Cash Out
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.
