    Description

    1916 World Series Game Two Ticket Stub. After surrendering a single score in the first frame, the twenty-one year old Boston Red Sox southpaw Babe Ruth delivered thirteen scoreless innings before Brooklyn Robins pitcher Sherry Smith finally faltered, surrendering the game-winning run in the bottom the fourteenth. This masterful performance from the young Bambino represented the start of twenty-nine and two-thirds scoreless innings Ruth would pitch in World Series competition, a record that would stand until the New York Yankees Hall of Famer Whitey Ford eclipsed the mark in 1962. This remarkably scarce keepsake is considered among the most desirable of all Ruth ticket stubs, and one would be very hard pressed to find a superior example. The Braves Field relic (promoters believed the Sox' home Fenway Park was too small to meet spectator demand) offers just the lightest back wrinkle, with the front presenting flawlessly. Encapsulated by PSA for protection and unquestioned authenticity.
