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.
The Yankees' opening salvo in the 1953 World Series was a 9-5 victory over the Dodgers, their 12-hit assault highlighted by home runs by Yogi Berra and Joe Collins. Dodgers starter Carl Erskine didn't make it to the second inning, as the Yankees scored 4 and basically coasted the rest of the way, adding three more in the bottom of the eighth.
Ticket stub is technically in FAIR condition due to light surface abrasions and paper loss on the reverse. Some mild surface wrinkling is observable on the front, as is some light soiling. The overall presentation is far stronger than the technical grade, however.
