Description

    1939 Hall of Fame Grand Opening Baseball Game Ticket Signed by Babe Ruth & Others, PSA/DNA NM-MT 8. 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 memento 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.

    An exhibition contest played at Doubleday Field that historic afternoon was an unofficial All-Star Game, featuring active players and veterans from all sixteen Big League clubs, captained by Honus Wagner and Eddie Collins. This stub for the event was presented to ten participants in that game, most notably the newly-immortalized Babe Ruth, whose black fountain pen ink joins that of future enshrinees Gabby Hartnett, Joe Medwick, Carl Hubbell and Bill Terry. Ticket reveals some creasing upon close inspection, but our catalog imagery should confirm our report that the distraction is practically nil. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, NM-MT 8. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
