1956 World Series Game 7 Full Ticket - Jackie Robinson’s Last Game!
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $474.00
When Dodgers fans attended the seventh and final game of the 1956 World Series at Ebbets Field little did they realize the significance of the event. While the 9-0 loss at the hands of their hated crosstown rivals, the Yankees, caused immediate sadness, it would be nothing compared to the emotions felt later that off season when they learned the Dodgers had traded Jackie Robinson to the New York Giants. Rather than play with the Giants Robinson retired, thus closing one of the most historic chapters in baseball history. Offered here is a complete ticket to Game 7 of the 1956 World Series, which represents Robinson's last game in the Major Leagues. The ticket, which granted entry to the "President's Box," displays five cancellation holes and is otherwise in Near Mint to Mint condition. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $474.00
