    Charlie Root's Lifetime Baseball Pass & 1932 World Series Game 3 Ticket Stub. "I gave my life to baseball," Root told his daughter two days before his 1970 passing, "and I'll only be remembered for something that never happened." The apocryphal tale of Babe Ruth's "Called Shot" in the 1932 World Series remains a topic of debate eight decades later, but we all know who was victimized by the titanic Wrigley Field blast. Offered is Charlie Root's Lifetime Pass presented "in appreciation of long and meritorious service" to our National Pastime. It remains housed in its original leather wallet, in fine condition. Also here is a VG stub for the game that would prove to be the defining event of his career. A fine pairing relating to one of the game's truly magical fables.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
