World Series ticket enthusiasts will appreciate this 1952 Ebbets Field voucher. Issued in Flatbush for the opener of the 1952 Fall Classic, the “Upper Stand” admission ticket features printed seating and event details, as well as the Dodgers’ script-style logo. With gorgeous colors, rounded corners and sharp edges, the item presents nicely, though is technically lesser because of (3) pinholes. In an auspicious start, Jackie Robinson launched his first-ever World Series home run that day. Accompanying is a souvenir scorecard. More on our website.
If the Dodgers vs. Yankees Fall Classics seemed like annual events, that’s because they were! Meeting for the third time in six installments, the cross-borough rivals battled to a decisive Game 7 in 1952. This particular ticket was issued for a game in which the hosts used three home runs to double up the Yanks by a 4-2 count. For Robinson, however, the second-inning circuit clout was hardly a sign of things to come. He went 3-for-22 the rest of the series and finished with a .174 average. The accompanying thick stock scorecard features pre-printed lineups and scoring grids partially marked in pencil. While this is not the version issued at Ebbets Field that day, it was likely printed and distributed locally, perhaps at newsstands. The item is crease-free and presents nicely, though there is a pinhole (likely from previous display).
