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 1955 World Series opened at Yankee Stadium with Whitey Ford facing Don Newcombe.  Both teams scored two in the 2nd and one in the 3rd, but the Yankees continued scoring, ultimately scoring six runs.  Joe Collins hit two home runs for the Yankees and Elston Howard added another in his World Series debut.  The Dodgers would attempt a comeback in the 8th inning, scoring two runs, but it would not be enough, the Yankees winning the game, 6-5.

Ticket stub is in POOR condition due to two stains at the rounded corners that are likely left by clear tape or some sort of acidic scrapbook paper.  Otherwise, the stub presents well, with some light surface soiling and wear, closer to VG/EX.
