    The Babe sets the mark for the Mick

    1921-32 Babe Ruth World Series Home Run Games Ticket Stub Complete Run. A blast to deep right field in the bottom of the ninth broke a one-one tie in the third game of the 1964 World Series, giving the Yankees a walk-off victory over the St. Louis Cardinals and earning Mickey Mantle sole ownership of the Fall Classic home run title. The man from whom he claimed the throne is honored here in the only known complete assembly of ticket stubs for Babe Ruth's fifteen World Series homers. Remarkably, the Babe compiled the impressive tally in just nine separate games of action, which are represented as follows:

    · 1921 Game Four: Home Run #1 vs. New York Giants at the Polo Grounds.
    · 1923 Game Two: Home Runs #2-3 vs. New York Giants at the Polo Grounds.
    · 1923 Game Six: Home Run #4 vs. New York Giants at the Polo Grounds.
    · 1926 Game Four: Home Runs #5-7 vs. St. Louis Cardinals at Sportsman's Park.
    · 1926 Game Seven: Home Run #8 vs. St. Louis Cardinals at Yankee Stadium.
    · 1927 Game Three: Home Run #9 vs. Pittsburgh Pirates at Yankee Stadium.
    · 1927 Game Four: Home Run #10 vs. Pittsburgh Pirates at Yankee Stadium.
    · 1928 Game Four: Home Runs #11-13 vs. St. Louis Cardinals at Sportsman's Park.
    · 1932 Game Three: Home Runs #14-15 vs. Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.


    Particularly notable entries include the 1921 stub, which stands at a population of just two in the PSA database. The 1923 representations are nearly as scarce. We also note that the first Championship clinchers for the Yankees (1923) and Cardinals (1926) franchises are counted among the stubs offered, as is Ruth's fabled "Called Shot," the final stub in the grouping. The second (1927) and third (1928) Yankee Championship clinchers are here too. All tickets are slabbed "Authentic" by PSA and exhibit strong eye appeal, with an occasional crease or evidence of scrapbook removal causing little distraction. Interested buyers are advised to visit our website for high resolution images of front and back of all tickets. All but impossible to replicate, this grouping represents the rarest of opportunities for the advanced Ruth collector.

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