Description

    1941 Brooklyn Dodgers Opening Day Ticket Stub. Long a hobby favorite for its attractive die-cut design, this NRMT stub allowed one lucky fan through the Ebbets Field turnstiles as the Brooklyn Dodgers opened the season against their hometown rival New York Giants. Though the Bums would suffer defeat this day, they would go on to claim their first National League pennant in twenty-one years in 1941, and meet the Yankees for the first of seven Subway Series over a fifteen-year period. The use of catcher imagery for this ticket seems a cruel irony, as the 1941 Dodgers are best remembered for Mickey Owen's dropped third strike for what should have been the final out of the Series' fourth game, an error that many see as the start of the Dodgers' lengthy run of bad luck against the hated Yanks.
