Outstanding ticket stub for the deciding Game 7 of the 1920 World Series, a classic contest that saw the Indians win their first Championship, just two months after their shortstop Ray Chapman was killed by a pitched ball.  Thought it was a best-of-nine Series, the Indians defeated the Brooklyn Robins 5 games to 2 in a Series that would see an unassisted triple play (courtesy of Cleveland's Bill Wambsganss) and the first grand slam in Series history (hit by Elmer Smith), as well as the first Series home run hit by a pitcher (Jim Bagby).  The Indians won the 7th game 3-0, Stan Coveleski scattering five hits and player/manager Tris Speaker driving in a run on a triple.

The ticket stub has been graded AUTHENTIC by PSA, likely due to two cancellation stamps in the stub itself.  The ticket has been stamped "Complimentary," with access through the press gate, so it is possible that the ticket itself was used for media access.  The stub does exhibit some creasing and wear at the corners and edges, and would likely grade in the 1-2 range had it been assigned a numerical grade.  Still, an outstanding ticket stub to an important Series game, the first Championship for the Cleveland Indians.
