The 1975 Major League Baseball All-Star Game was the 46th mid-season exhibition between the all-stars of the American League (AL) and the National League (NL), the two leagues comprising Major League Baseball. The game was played on July 15, 1975, at Milwaukee County Stadium in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, home of the Milwaukee Brewers of the American League. The game resulted in a 6–3 victory for the NL.

While this was the first time that the Brewers were acting as hosts of the All-Star Game, this was not the first time the game had been played at Milwaukee County Stadium. The 1955 game had been played there when the Braves had called Milwaukee home. Thus, Milwaukee County Stadium joined Sportsman's Park in St. Louis and Shibe Park in Philadelphia as the only stadiums to host All-Star Games with two different franchises as host.

This would also be the last time Milwaukee County Stadium would host the game. When the game returned to Milwaukee in 2002, the Brewers had moved into their new home at Miller Park.

The 1975 All-Star Game saw the start of the tradition of naming honorary captains to the All-Star teams. The first honorary captains were Mickey Mantle (for the AL) and Stan Musial (for the NL).

It would also mark the final All-Star Game in which only the Star-Spangled Banner, sung this year by Glen Campbell, was performed on its own.

Direct from the bowels of the now departed Milwaukee County Stadium, this unopened case was stored in a dark distant corner of the host park where it remained undisturbed until being unearthed shortly before its demolition in 1999.

Still factory sealed, this case is stamped, “All Star Program, 100 Per Box”. Brown card board case shows some storage wear.
