As mentioned above, very visually striking, FWIW.

Default 1907 Indians program

I have been collecting deadball era programs for 25 years and that price blew me away. Although I admit I cant recall seeing a 1907 before, I have had other 1904 to 1909 Indian programs and most of them have a similar cover design with a head shot of Lajoie. They typically sell in the $500 to $1,200 range. Love of Game auctions sold a 1905 a few years ago that looked similar for around $500.

My guess is two longtime Indian program collectors that were missing that year and didnt want to wait another 20 years until another one surfaced went at it. I did the same thing when a 1904 Cubs program came up ebay this year that I was missing.

It was some sort of "perfect storm".

Reds collectors
Indians collectors
1907 collectors
Lajoie collectors (I'm too lazy to figure out if that game was his 2000th hit).

All could have had an interest.

Maybe Danny Murphy's great grand daughter was excited about his 19th career HR.

Article about the game from the Philadelphia Enquirer.....seems Murphy's homer rolled through a hole in the fence.

It's a scarce program and I'll bet two Lajoie collectors went head to head.

I think this is the most likely scenario.

I think older programs in general are undervalued, but virtually all are scarce. I would be very surprised if the scarcity of this particular game program had anything to do with the price. I think the most likely scenario is a bidding war where ego trumped common sense (take it from someone with first hand experience). Another explanation for unusually high prices can be shill bidding, although Im not suggesting that that is the reason here. With that all said, the price seems unusually high to me.
