Description

    1939 Baseball Hall of Fame Grand Opening Program & Ticket Stub. The Centennial season of baseball is remembered for the debut of Ted Williams and the tragic departure of Lou Gehrig, but it could be argued that the most significant event of the season took place in a sleepy little upstate New York village called Cooperstown. Here we present one lucky baseball fan's personal mementoes from the grand opening of the Baseball Hall of Fame, an event that saw the official immortalization of Ruth, Cobb, Wagner and several other Dead Ball and Golden Age legends. The program from the day's events contains scorecards for the Collins vs. Wagners contest at center (unscored), and exhibits general handling wear but no condition issues of any significant concern. The ticket stub for the day's baseball game is finer still, a legitimate EX-MT with only light edge and corner wear.

    The staff at Heritage are amazing to work with. My wife and I were given the "red carpet treatment" from the moment we walked in. We felt safe and secure the moment we arrived.
