This ticket stub is one of a complete run of stubs from every New York Yankees/Brooklyn Dodgers World Series game being offered in this auction.  We invite you to view our printed catalog or visit our e-book catalog online at https://online.flippingbook.com/view/961320424/ to read an excellent article on the crosstown rivalry written by SABR president Mark Armour.

The Series' final game at Ebbets Field, the Yankees would win this one, 2-1, the first game in the Series not won by the home team.  Dodgers starter Rex Barney - much like Bill Bevens in Game 4 - was done in by the walk, as Barney handed out nine free passes in less than five innings.  DiMaggio Homered in the fifth to give the Yankees their second run, which would all they would need.  Hoping to extend the heroics of the prior game Cookie Lavagetto stepped to the plate to pinch hit with two outs and the tying run on second in the bottom of the ninth - but Lavagetto struck out.

Exceptional ticket stub, grading VG only due to a very small surface crease at the top edge, perhaps a centimeter long.  Otherwise an excellent stub, colorful and bright.
