Outstanding Yankee Stadium ticket stub from Game 1 of the 1949 World Series, an outstanding pitchers duel putting Allie Reynolds against Don Newcombe. Newcombe struck out 11 Yankees, giving up just five hits, but it was the fifth that was the most important - a solo home run by Tommy Henrich that would be the first walk-off home run in World Series history.
The stub is in FAIR condition with significant visible surface creasing, none of which breaks the color of the ticket or disrupts the eye appeal to any great degree, but which is notable, and passes through the reverse of the paper. Some light soiling is evident, though not significant. A strong stub from the first game of the 1949 World Series.
