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.

With the momentum on the Yankees' side, Brooklyn needed a big game, and thanks to Johnny Podres, they got one.  Podres scattered 7 hits in a complete game victory, striking out 6 and having just one shaky inning, the Yankees scoring 2 runs in the 2nd, including Mickey Mantle's 5th World Series home run.  The Dodgers won the game, 8-3, bringing the series to a 2-1 Yankee lead.

Attractive ticket stub has been graded EX 5 by PSA, an outstanding example with very little visible wear.  A key stub from the game that began the Dodgers' 1955 turnaround.
