The 1958 World Series pitted the Milwaukee Braves against the New York Yankees, a 7-game affair that saw the Yankees come back from a deficit of three games to 1, taking the last three games including two at Milwaukee County Stadium.  The National League pennant race was nowhere near as exciting, Milwaukee finishing eight games ahead of second place Pittsburgh.  This did not stop the Pirates organization from making postseason plans, however, as evidenced by this collection of four proof tickets for a 1958 World Series.  Each of the colorful tickets has the word "SAMPLE" stamped in red ink where the seat location would be, each of the four games (Games 1, 2, 6 and 7) printed in a different color.  Each ticket appears VG with light wear, a bit more corner and edge wear evident on the Game 2 ticket than the others.  Four tickets total.
