The 1933 Washington Senators' World Series Train Menu

The first two games of the 1933 World Series were played at the Polo Grounds, the home of the National League champs, the New York Giants. The Giants were the heavy underdogs against the Senators, but won the first two games at home. The next three games were at Griffith Stadium in Washington. A special train took the Senators back to Washington D.C. This menu is from that train ride, which left New York’s Pennsylvania Station on October 4, 1933. The menu is signed by most of the Senators including “Goose” Goslin, Sam Rice, Joe Cronin, Moe Berg, Heine Manush and team owner Cal Griffith.

This menu represents the true end of an era. The next baseball season witnessed the first airplane transportation for a professional baseball team (the Cincinnati Reds).
