Outstanding stub from Game 2 of the 1936 World Series between the New York Yankees and New York Giants, a series that featured Yankees rookie outfielder Joe DiMaggio.  The Yankees absolutely hammered the Giants in this game by a score of 18-4, a score that would set the record for the greatest margin of victory in a World Series game, a record that still stands.  Everyone in the Yankee lineup had at least one hit, including pitcher Lefty Gomez.  Bill Dickey and Tony Lazzeri each hit home runs and each drove in five runs, while DiMaggio and shortstop Frank Crosetti each had three hits.  The stub has been graded GOOD 2 by PSA due to overall wear, though the eye appeal is strong, with bright color and sharp printing.
