Before you can win 236 regular season games, 10 World Series games, and be elected to the Hall of Fame, you have to win your first game. The Yankee fans attending this game on July 17, 1950 couldn't possibly have known they were witnessing the first win of a legendary career, which is probably why this ticket wasn't saved and literally never surfaces. In fact it is a PSA POP 1. Whitey was making just his 2nd career start and pitched well enough to beat the White Sox 4-3, going 7.2 innings and allowing 3 runs. This item comes encased in a PSA holder for protection and unquestioned authenticity.
The 1927 World Series was played—not to declare baseball's ultimate champions (that had already been determined)—but because the National Pastime's tradition so mandated. We might say that the October event of '27 merely re-asserted the invincibility of the Yankees - emphatically. It turned out to be a four-game sweep, as we all know. Offered here is a surviving ticket from Game 3 of that series, which was won by the Yankees 8-1 due in part to a 3-run homer by Babe Ruth in the 7th inning (career W.S. Homerun #9 for the Babe). The ticket is in overall good condition with some rounding on the corners and some paper loss on the reverse along the right and bottom borders. There are no pronounced creases or blemishes and this ticket has great eye appeal This item comes encased in a PSA holder for protection and unquestioned authenticity.
Lou Gehrig played in 7 World Series with the New York Yankees, winning 6 of them. He batted .361 in the fall classics with 10 Home Runs and certainly would have had more had his career not been shortened. Offered here is a ticket stub to Gehrig's 1st World Series game, 1926 Game 1. This game took place on October 2nd at Yankee Stadium. Although the Yankees lost the series in 1926, they did win this game 2-1 over the Cardinals as Gehrig got his 1st ever World Series base hit and knocked in 2 runs as well. The PSA POP Report for this ticket is 9, making this a very difficult ticket to fill.

The New York Yankees have played in 40 World Series and won 27. This incredible run started on October 5, 1921 at the Polo Grounds against New York Giants. Although the Yankees would win that first game, they would eventually lose the series in 8 games. As far as what happened in this 3-0 Yankee victory, Babe Ruth got his first Yankee World Series hit and RBI, and Frankie Frisch went 4-4 at the plate. This 91 year old ticket is about as rare as it gets, a true POP 1 on the PSA POP Report, the only one they have authenticated and slabbed to date. The ticket itself is in very good condition with excellent eye appeal. There is some rounding of the corners, a few light creases and a small bit of paper loss on the reverse from the usher tear. For any collector trying to put together the full Yankee World Series ticket run, this historically significant ticket is the one that has been nothing short of elusive, until now. This item comes encased in a PSA holder for protection and unquestioned authenticity.

Rivera has passed Trevor Hoffman (601 career saves) and will continue to extend that record by a considerable amount, setting what could be an unbreakable record. The PSA POP report on this FULL ticket is as follows..... Only 4 have been submitted to PSA, with this one being tied for the highest grade with a MINT "9". Here is an opportunity to own a very rare high grade collectible from one of the greatest Yankees of all time and certainly the greatest relief pitcher ever.

During the late-1950s, Los Angeles was a new attraction in the National League and so was an overpowering southpaw named Sandy Koufax. As the Dodgers were on their way to their first-ever title on the West Coast in 1959, Koufax put his signature on a 4-1 triumph as he fanned 16 Phillies on June 22. Encapsulated and graded PSA 6, this Los Angeles Coliseum ticket stub was issued for that impressive mound performance. The clean crisp voucher features printed seating details and the Dodgers' script-style logo on the front and the facsimile signature of club president Walter O'Malley on the reverse. The strikeout total (which included four punchouts of Wally Post and two of Sparky Anderson) marked Koufax' first of eight career regular-season games with 15 or more Ks.
