Description

    1947 "Babe Ruth Day" New York Yankees Ticket Stub. With a collective tear in their eyes, Yankee Stadium patrons said farewell to Babe Ruth on April 27, 1947. Because he was battling the cancer which would eventually take his life, Ruth was a shell of his former self. This crease free ticket was owned by one of the lucky fans sitting in the stands that tearful day. The corners have rounded but the ticket is EX/MT. "Wash 1 Yanks 0" is carefully written on back. One of only three stubs from this contest on the PSA population report at this time. Encapsulated by PSA, Authentic.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
