    The great Bambino signs for a fan on the day the Yankees clinch their first World Championship!

    1923 World Series Game Six Ticket Stub Signed by Babe Ruth, PSA/DNA Mint 9. When the paperwork that delivered a young pitcher named Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees crossed the auction block nearly a decade ago, the million-dollar price realized dwarfed any previous result for a baseball document, and properly so. Even the most casual baseball historian is aware of the sea change that contract represented, a shift in baseball dominance from Beantown to the Big Apple that saw the latter claim twenty-six World Championships before the former could once again claw its way back to baseball's mountain top. As the Red Sox languished in the grip of the Curse of the Bambino, the Yankees redefined themselves as the greatest sports franchise on Earth, a team synonymous with success.

    It is from that same perspective that we must view the presented article,a ticket stub from the game that saw the New York Yankees claim its very first World Championship, autographed by the man who forever tipped baseball's scales in the Yankees' favor. The ultimate symbol of the birth of the Yankee dynasty, this ticket stub ranks among the most significant mementos in franchise history. The October 15, 1923 clincher at the Giants' home ballpark the Polo Grounds saw Ruth draw first blood for the Champions with a line drive solo shot over the right field wall, his fourth of what would prove to become a record fifteen Fall Classic long balls.

    Just over thirty-four thousand fans were on hand to witness pinstriped history in the making, but today only ten stubs from the clincher have found their way into PSA slabs. This autographed example is far and away the most desirable of that thin population, the black ink signature on reverse assessed at an impressive Mint 9 level by the experts at PSA/DNA. The small "quotation marked" format perfectly matches Ruth's exemplars from the era. A peerless artifact that captures the Yankees mystique in a manner unlike any other. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Mint 9.
