1941 Brooklyn Dodgers World Series "Dropped Third Strike" Game 4 Full Ticket: Signed By Mickey Owen and Tommy Henrich!
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $296
Complete full ticket for Game 4 of the 1941 World Series between the New York Yankees and Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field, signed on the front by Tommy Henrich and Mickey Owen. Both signatures have been flawlessly scripted in blue ballpoint (grading "10"). Game 4 of the 1941 World Series, of course, is legendary for one of the most famous miscues in World Series history. With the Dodgers leading the Yankees 4-3 with two out in the top of the ninth inning it seemed that the Dodgers had the victory well in hand. All that stood in the way of the Dodgers knotting the Series at two games apiece was the Yankees' Tommy Henrich. After working the count to 3-2 against Dodgers hurler Hugh Casey, Henrich swung and missed at the final offering. The only problem for the Dodgers was that Owen missed the ball as well. As it scooted under Owen's glove, Henrich raced to first to keep the Yankees inning alive. As fate would have it, the Yankees, given new life, proceeded to score four runs, building a lead they would not relinquish. Demoralized, the Dodgers dropped the next game, and the Series, to the Yankees. The ticket is crisp and clean, with bold colors and extremely light wear along the edges. Stamped "Void" near the row designation on both ends, the ticket (7.25 x 2.25 inches) is in otherwise outstanding Excellent to Mint condition. Full LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $296
