The Yankees took a commanding lead in the 1953 World Series by defeating Brooklyn in the second game, 4-2. Down 2-1 in the 7th, Billy Martin led off the inning with a solo shot off Preacher Roe to tie the game, and in the 8th, after a Hank Bauer single, Mickey Mantle hit his third career World Series home run to put the Yankees ahead for good. Roe and Eddie Lopat both pitched complete games in the effort.
Presented is an attractive stub from the game, graded VG 3 by PSA. Some light surface wrinkling is evident along the bottom edge, some edge wear at the perforations also observable. Eye appeal is strong.
