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.

Game 3 was another close contest, and a 1-1 pitcher's duel into the ninth.  In the top of the inning, the Yankees strung together a series of singles with a walk sandwiched in-between, and scored three runs.  The Dodgers came back in the bottom of the ninth with solo home runs by Luis Olmo and Roy Campanella, but the two runs would not be enough to catch the Yankees, as Joe Page struck out Bruce Edwards to end the game, 4-3.

Colorful ticket stub is in GOOD condition, though it looks stronger, has a series of horizontal creases that run the entire length of the top edge of the stub.  Some light surface wear is also evident, as are some minor but visible wrinkles elsewhere on the stub.
