This very carefully assembled collection is overall in only slightly lesser grade than the first set. It is still in a very impressive overall exceptionally high grade. Due to the extremely minor faults naturally common to tickets, 85% of the collection technically ranges in grade from Very Good to Excellent, averaging Vg-Ex, with the balance being in very pleasing Good or better condition, but the collection as a whole has an overall Excellent appearance. A tremendous amount of time and effort has been invested and literally hundreds of tickets have been carefully considered over more than a decade in the assembly of this second complete 1941 to 1956 Dodgers vs. Yankees World Series ticket stub collection. Total 44 tickets. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $5,220.00
