Game 3 of the 1941 Series was a nail-biter, a pitchers duel between Marius Russo of the Yankees and a crew of Dodgers beginning with Freddie Fitzsimmons. Scoreless into the eighth, the Yankeesstrung together four consecutive singles off reliever Hugh Casey to plate two runners before Larry French induced Bill Dickey to ground into an inning-ending double play. In the bottom of the frame, Pee Wee Reese singled home Dixie Waker to bring the Dodgers within one, but that's where the score would remain, as both teams were held scoreless in the 9th.
Attractive stub would have a technical grade of FAIR due to a notch in the edge near the perforation, along with some fait creasing, and a few surface abrasions on the reverse. Still, the stub presents very well for the technical grade.
