1932 World Series "Babe's Called Shot" Ticket Stub

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $2,115

Did he, or didn't he? That's the question everyone was asking after Game 3 of the 1932 World Series between the Yankees and Cubs held at Wrigley Field. Did Ruth point to the center-field bleachers right before hitting a home run to that exact spot, or was he pointing at pitcher Charlie Root? Ruth, of course, never said. One person who could have offered an informed opinion at the time was the original owner of this ticket, which, coincidentally, was issued for a bleacher seat. Long regarded as one of the most desirable of all World Series tickets, this example is in extraordinary condition, all the more so given its age, use, and fragile nature. This is the finest example of this important ticket we have ever offered. Aside from what appears to be the slightest hint of adhesive residue in a tiny area on the reverse (barely detectable, probably the remnants of glue from storage in an album, responsible for the stellar condition), the ticket stub (3.75 x 2.25 inches) is in extraordinary Near Mint condition. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+ SOLD FOR $2,115
