1927 World Series Ticket Collection (3)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,350.00
This collection of three 1927 World Series tickets stubs is comprised of tickets for Games 1 and 2, held at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh, and Game 3, held at Yankee Stadium in New York. The 1927 World Series, which matched the fabled New York Yankees against the Pittsburgh Pirates, seemed almost anticlimactic, given the Yankees dominance during the regular season. Led by Ruth and Gehrig, the team's vaunted "Murderer's Row" lineup belted out a then record 158 home runs and led the league in virtually every offensive category. Although the Pirates featured a formidable lineup themselves, led by the famed Waner brothers, Paul and Lloyd, they proved no match for the "Bronx Bombers." The Yankees easily dispatched their National League rivals in four straight games, thus forever earning them the unofficial title of baseball's all-time greatest team. The tickets for Games 1 and 2, at Pittsburgh, measure 3.75 x 1.5 inches and are in Good condition overall, with each displaying various minor imperfections common to tickets such as light edge wear and creases (very light on Game 1 ticket). The ticket for Game 1 has the line score of the game, won by the Yankees 5-4, neatly written on the reverse in pencil. The ticket for Game 3, at New York, measures 4.25 x 2.25 inches and is in Excellent condition, displaying only minimal corner wear, a light abrasion on the reverse, and a few tiny surface wrinkles that are only visible on the reverse. Ruth hit one of his two Series home runs in Game 3. This is an extremely desirable trio of World Series tickets dating from one of the most legendary seasons in baseball history. Total: 3 tickets. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $2,350.00
