1941 to 1956 Dodgers vs. Yankees World Series Complete Ticket Stub Collection (44 Different)
Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $7,540.00
Incredible collection of 44 different World Series ticket stubs representing a complete set of all 44 World Series games played between the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Yankees between 1941 and 1956. During the 1940s and 1950s, as this collection so effectively illustrates, the Dodgers and the Yankees were almost religiously locked in a heated postseason rivalry. The Dodgers fell to the Yankees year after year, prompting cries of "Wait 'til next year!" until finally redeemed with a World Series Championship in 1955. This collection featuring 44 different ticket stubs, from seven different World Series, includes every game from each Yankees/Dodgers World Series as follows: 1) 1941 (5 stubs): Game 1 and 2 Yankee Stadium; Game 3, 4 (famous Owen error game, ticket signed by Henrich and Owen), and 5 Ebbets Field. 2) 1947 (7 stubs): Game 1, 2, 6, and 7 Yankee Stadium; Game 3 (DiMaggio and Berra home runs), 4, and 5 (DiMaggio hr) Ebbets Field. 3) 1949 (5 stubs): Game 1 and 2 Yankee Stadium; Game 3 (Reese and Campy home runs), 4, and 5 (DiMaggio and Hodges home runs) Ebbets Field. 4) 1952 (7 stubs): Game 1 (Robinson, Snider, Reese home runs), 2, 6 (Mantle, Berra, Snider home runs), and 7 (Mantle hr) Ebbets Field; Game 3 (Berra and Mize home runs), 4 (Mize hr), and 5 (Mize and Snider home runs) Yankee Stadium. 5) 1953 (6 stubs): Game 1 (Berra, Hodges, Gilliam home runs), 2 (Mantle hr), and 6 Yankee Stadium; Game 3 (Campy hr), 4 (Snider hr), and 5 (Mantle hr) Ebbets Field. 6) 1955 (7 stubs): Game 1 (Snider hr), 2, 6, and 7 Yankee Stadium; Game 3 (Mantle and Campy home runs), 4 (Campy, Snider, Hodges home runs), and 5 (Berra and Snider home runs) Ebbets Field. 7) 1956 (7 stubs): Game 1 (Mantle, Martin, Robinson, Hodges home runs), 2 (Snider and Berra home runs), 6, and 7 (Berra home runs) Ebbets Field; Game 3, 4 (Mantle hr), and 5 (Larsen perfect game, Mantle hr, Ex) Yankee Stadium. This is an extraordinary and very carefully assembled collection in overall exceptionally high grade. Due to the extremely minor faults naturally common to tickets, condition technically ranges in grade from Very Good to Excellent, averaging Vg-Ex (with a very few slightly lesser and a few more in Ex-Mt condition), but the collection as a whole has a far stronger overall Excellent appearance. A tremendous amount of time and effort has been invested in assembling this beautiful run. Literally hundreds of tickets have been carefully considered over a period of more than a decade in the assembly of this premium collection. It would be hard to put together a nicer set, even with the luxury of time. Total 44 tickets. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $7,540.00
