1916 Brooklyn Dodgers World Series Ticket Stub - Game 3 - First WS Win in Franchise History!
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,320
Ticket stub from Game 3 of the 1916 World Series between the Brooklyn Dodgers and Boston Red Sox held at Ebbets Field on October 10th. The ticket, which is for a lower-tier reserved seat, reads "Game 1," but the number denotes the first game in Brooklyn, not the first game of the Series. This ticket commemorates the very first World Series game ever played at Ebbets Field and also the first World Series win in franchise history. Brooklyn fans would have to savor it, for it was the team's only victory in the Series that year. Jack Coombs defeated Carl Mays 4-3 in front of 21,087 fans, which was the smallest attendance figure of the Series. This is only the second example of this highly prized, and historically significant World Series ticket we have ever offered. The first appeared as Lot 1025 in our May 2012 auction, where it realized $2,666. This ticket stub, as can be seen, is an ideal example with two sections that are attached. If only one section were present, it would still be referred to by ticket collectors as a stub, but having both sections attached is, of course, the ideal. Because of the two sections, a full two-part 1916 World Series ticket stub like this is sometimes mistaken for a full ticket. (A full ticket would actually have three sections). This is a particularly outstanding example! The ticket (3.75 x 1.75 inches) has only a tiny pinhole in the upper left corner, a small diagonal crease in the lower right corner, and a tiny corner chip in the lower left. In exceptionally strong Very Good condition overall. SOLD FOR $1,320
