Incredible full ticket granting the bearer access to County Stadium in Milwaukee for an April 17, 1956 contest between the Braves and Chicago Cubs. It was Opening Day and 22-year-old right fielder Henry Aaron impressed, going 2-4 with a HR off Cubs starter, Bob Rush. This would prove to be the 41st of Aaron's 755 career long balls and his first on Opening Day. Off-white ticket with bold lettering suffers from an obvious crease running from the right to left edge through the word "Bleacher." Corners do exhibit moderate wear but ticket survives as a wonderful memento from the infancy of Hank Aaron's trailblazing career.
