The Yankees would sweep the 1938 World Series against the Chicago Cubs, their third straight championship en route to a four-year streak.  The second game was played at Wrigley Field, a 6-3 Yankees win.  The game was notable because Gomez started against Dizzy Dean, who rejuvenated his career after being traded to Chicago in April.  Dean's fastball had evaded him, blamed on a toe injury he received in the 1937 All-Star game that forced him to change his pitching motion.  Dean pitched well, but the Yankees scored two unanswered runs in the 8th and two more in the 9th to win.  Well-worn ticket stub presents well but does display edge and surface wear, along with light wrinkles and creases throughout.  An irregular tear is also evident at the perf.  Still, another important stub from yet another Yankees World Series win.
