    1939 Opening of Baseball Hall of Fame Game Ticket Stub. Ticket stub rode in the pocket as one lucky fan at Doubleday Field as he witnessed "The Collins" take on "The Wagners," each team named for the Hall of Fame managers at the helm. Major League Baseball took a one-day hiatus for the event, as each manager hand-picked his team to include future inductees like Dizzy Dean, Arky Vaughan, Mel Ott, Hank Greenberg and Lefty Grove. Even the great Babe Ruth made an honorary appearance at age forty-four. The significance of this piece, dating to the greatest convergence of pre-war baseball talent ever assembled, and the birth of professional baseball's most revered institution, cannot be overstated. It remains in stellar condition, the back as clean as the front, without a crease, tear or stain to report. Encapsulated by PSA for protection and unquestioned authenticity.
