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.

Historically significant ticket stub from Game 1 of the 1952 World Series, the first time an African-American pitcher was credited with a World Series win.  Rookie Joe Black squared off against Yankees ace Allie Reynolds at Ebbets Field, and Black held the Yankees to just two runs in the 4-2 Dodgers victory.  Jackie Robinson hit his first World Series home run in the bottom of the second, Duke Snider hit a two-run blast in the 6th, and Pee Wee Reese followed up with one more in the 8th.

Ticket stub has been graded GOOD 2 by PSA due to significant surface creasing, but the creasing barely breaks the surface of the paper, making it difficult to see at arm's length.  An outstanding stub from a historically important World Series game.
