After scoring eight runs in Game 3 of the 1955 Series, the Dodgers came back and scored eight more in Game 4, with home runs by Roy Campanella, Gil Hodges and Duke Snider. The Yankees went through an Aaron Boone-like five pitchers, Don Larsen coming out in the 5th after walking leadoff hitter Jim Gilliam. Johnny Kucks in relief did not fare much better, giving up a single to Pee Wee Reese and a three run home run to Duke Snider. Rip Coleman did not fare much better, giving up five hits and a run in one inning of work. Tom Morgan and Tom Sturdivant mopped up. The Dodgers had tied the Series, 2-2.
Ticket stub appears VG/EX, with some light discoloring, barely noticeable, along the right half. Very light wear is evident, predominantly at the perforations. A very light, barely noticeable straight surface wrinkle can be seen vertically from top to bottom along the right edge of the stub, to the right of the text reading "Enter Gate A." An outstanding example from another key game of the 1955 Series.
