It's such a good question, though, that it points out one thing to regret about interleague play (apart from its sheer pointlessness). The Giants and Tigers (if SF does win tonight) have never played in a Series (dang Merkle), but they've certainly played regular-season games. So the whole mystique of teams that have gone a century without ever meeting is ruined, permanently. It's nothing big, just a little tarnish on the event, should it happen.
Last Series featuring two teams with one combined appearance?
Last Series featuring two teams that had yet to make multiple appearances?
Yup - Dodgers (or Robins, at the time) 1, Indians 0.
Starting next year, it seems like Astros-Brewers would be the weirdest possible World Series matchup, right?
Is that as weird as the notion the Astros will be anywhere near a World Series in the foreseeable future?
I was going to second SoSH's suggestion, because an Astros-Cubs World Series in 2013 would have to have been preceded by the absolutely strangest series of events in regular-season and postseason history to bring us to that point.
