The offered ticket stub hails from one of the more momentous events in Fall Classic annals. Issued at the Polo Grounds for Game 1 of the 1954 World Series, this voucher granted its bearer an ideal vantage point to witness Willie Mays’ epic catch that turned the tide in the New York Giants’ sweep of the heavily favored Cleveland Indians. The “Bleacher Admission” stub has a “$2.10” asking price and provided likely the closest view of Mays’ heroics in the cavernous Polo Grounds outfield. The item presents minimally as (VG-EX) with an uneven admission tear and some minor creases.
