Brooklyn native, Sandy Koufax only held a 9-10 record heading into his fourth season with the Dodgers in 1958. Having just moved nearly 3000 miles with his hometown team from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, the 22-year-old Koufax was still looking for his first win of the season by May 20th. Presented is a ticket stub from that very day, a day in which Koufax would record his very first victory as a Los Angeles Dodger and the 10th of 165 in his career. Koufax tossed a gem, going all 11 innings against visiting Milwaukee while allowing three runs in the first inning, then blanking the Braves the rest of the way. An obvious dark stain runs horizontally across the face of this stub while corners remain pleasingly intact. A hint of staining does show through on reverse which otherwise remains clean. An important stub from the early career of perhaps the greatest lefty to ever play the game.
