Mickey Mantle's third-inning bomb - a grand slam that would be his fourth of 18 World Series homers he would eventually hit - is credited with turning the momentum of the Series around. The Yankees would win the game 11-7, though the game was never as close as the final score would indicate. The win put the Yankees ahead, 3 games to 2, as they were heading back to Yankee Stadium for Game 6.
Attractive Ebbets Field stub for the game, graded VG 3 by PSA with visible surface wrinkling horizontally beginning with the perf and running midway across the ticket, along with some additional light wrinkles beginning in the upper left corner and traversing diagonally downward. Still, an exceptional stub from an important World Series game, which included a Mickey Mantle home run.
