Coming home to Ebbets Field for Game 3 of the 1953 World Series, the Dodgers needed a dominant performance, and that is exactly what they got from pitcher Carl Erskine. Erskine held the Yankees to two runs, breaking Howard Ehmke's 1929 record for strikeouts in a World Series game by fanning 14 yankees. The Dodgers managed to eke out three runs, the final one an 8th inning solo shot by Roy Campanella which would be the deciding factor. The win changed the momentum of the Series for the Dodgers.
Outstanding ticket stub graded VG-EX 4 by PSA, some wear along the perf and a light area of discoloration at the top left. Still, an outstanding example from this game, a record-breaking performance by Dodgers hero Carl Erskine, who kept the Dodgers' season alive.
