    1958 NFL Championship Game Giants vs. Colts "Greatest Game Ever Played" Full Ticket, PSA Authentic. Just weeks after Mickey Mantle and the boys clawed their way back from a three games to one deficit to claim World Series victory against the Milwaukee Braves, another fiercely contested championship battle was playing out at the House that Ruth Built.

    Deadlocked at seventeen at the close of regulation, the game earned the historic distinction as the first championship contest in NFL history to go into sudden death overtime, with Colts running back Alan Ameche dealing the fatal blow to the New York Giants with a third down one-yard to end the game. Seventeen participants in the contest (including coaches and administration) are now enshrined at Canton, among them Frank Gifford, Don Maynard, Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry, Johnny Unitas, Raymond Berry and Weeb Ewbank.

    The unprecedented drama and elite casting have served to immortalize the contest under the heading of "The Greatest Game Ever Played," a status that rightfully provides added luster to the few relics to surface from the occasion. Programs appear with some regularity, and occasionally a slab from the goalposts which were torn down in celebration or frustration as was typical for Championship gridiron contests of the period. Presented here is one of only two known unused tickets from the 1958 NFL title game.

    Slabbed "Authentic", this is one of only two fully intact examples examined by the experts at PSA, while the other two 1958 championship fulls on the pop report note "reattached" as a disclaimer. Displaying terrific eye appeal, it displays a scattering of creases, but its terrific color remains. Encapsulated by PSA, Authentic.
