Description

    1958 Full Unused Ticket for First Ever West Coast Major League Game. Major League Baseball's own Manifest Destiny was realized on April 15, 1958 as the newly relocated Dodgers and Giants franchises met in the first Big League game ever played west of the Rocky Mountains. Unbelievably, one ticket holder decided against attending this historic contest, instead saving the presented untorn ticket for posterity. His loss is the collecting hobby's gain, allowing one lucky Heritage bidder to lay claim to what is arguably, from a baseball history standpoint, the most important post-war ticket on earth. Condition is spectacular, as the front displays at an unbelievable NRMT and the back equally strong but for a pair of "Good at Any Gate" stamps and a handwritten "Commis. Box." This is the first example we've ever encountered, and we wouldn't be surprised if it proves to be the last as well.
