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.
