 < 1941 World Series 1943 > 

The 1942 World Series featured the defending champion New York Yankees against the St. Louis Cardinals, with the Cardinals winning the Series in five games for their first championship since 1934 and their fourth overall.

The 1942 St. Louis Cardinals set a franchise record for victories with 106. Every Cardinal—except for Harry Gumbert—was a product of the teams' farm system which was put in place by Branch Rickey.

The Yankees won Game 1 despite a Cardinals rally but the Cardinals swept the rest. The loss was the Yankees' first since the 1926 World Series to the Cardinals. They had won eight Series in the interim.
