Game 3 of the 1952 World Series was a tight one, with the Dodgers leading 3-2 heading into the 9th, Preacher Roe and Eddie Lopat both dealing for their respective teams. In the top of the ninth, with Jackie Robinson on second and Pee Wee Reese on first, the two fleet-footed infielders attempted a double steal. A passed ball on the play allowed both runners to score, effectively putting the game out of reach. Johnny Mize hit a solo home run in the bottom of the 9th, but the Yankees lost, 5-3, putting the Dodgers up, two games to one.
Ticket stub is in POOR condition with significant creasing, top to bottom both at the left and right edges.
