Description

    1919 World Series Ticket Stubs Lot of 5. With the possible exception of the inaugural Fall Classic in 1903, the most sought after and desirable World Series artifacts date to the scandalous October of 1919, when Shoeless Joe and seven Black Sox teammates conspired to take a dive for the money. Here we present ticket stubs used for admission to five of the Series' eight games. All four Crosley Field (Cincinnati Reds home) games are here, most notably the first game of the Series that saw Sox pitcher Eddie Cicotte bean the lead-off batter to signal that the fix was on. Also here is the third Comiskey Park (Chicago White Sox home) game, which was the fifth game of the Series. All stubs show an expected degree of wear, with creasing and edge wear. Cincinnati Game One has split along the perforations into two parts, and Game Four almost has done so as well. Chicago Game Three has glue staining on verso. Of course these flaws must be overlooked given the tremendous scarcity and desirability. Also here is a felt "Cincinnati Reds" armband worn by a Reds rooter. Glue from scrapbook on verso does not affect display. Finally, we have a notice of the train schedule for Reds fans traveling to Chicago, still affixed to a scrapbook page. Creasing and edge wear. Collection derives from a Cincinnati estate.
