1960 Pittsburgh Pirates World Series Game 7 PSA-Graded Full Ticket - Mazeroski's Game-Winning Home Run!
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,000
Rare full ticket to Game 7 of the 1960 World Series held at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh. Encapsulated and graded "VG 3" by PSA. Game 7 of the 1960 World Series will always be remembered for Bill Mazeroski's dramatic walk-off home run, which gave the Pirates their first World Championship since 1925. Interestingly, the owner of this ticket, our consignor's father-in-law, did attend the game that afternoon. As he entered the stadium, he requested that the ticket not be ripped so that he could have the full ticket as a souvenir. Obviously, few, if any, other fans had such foresight. This is the first example we have ever offered and we cannot recall having seen more than a few others at auction in the past fifteen years. In addition to the Pirates' World Championship, this ticket also commemorates Casey Stengel's final game as manager of the New York Yankees. Despite winning ten pennants and seven World Championships in twelve seasons with the Yankees, Stengel was unceremoniously fired after losing the 1960 fall classic, making it an especially bitter defeat for "The Old Professor." Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $3,000
