Scarce ticket stub issued for Game 5 of the 1929 World Series between the Philadelphia A's and Chicago Cubs at Shibe Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This is the first ticket stub we have ever handled from the fifth and final game of the 1929 World series and we have only seen a few other examples over the years. The A's defeated the Cubs 3-2 in Game 5, thereby marking the start of the club's two-year World Championship reign. The ticket (5 x 2.5 inches) displays minor edge tears and long the top border and is in Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
