Of historical significance on two fronts, the 1955 World Series marked the New York Yankees’ sixth appearance in seven seasons and eventually, the end of the seemingly annual torment suffered by the Brooklyn Dodgers, who managed to overcome their Bronx rivals in seven games for the franchise’s first-ever title. In the circles of Fall Classic tickets, enthusiasts are hard-pressed to find a more scarce and captivating memento than this 1955 World Series uncut ticket sheet. Framed to 17 x 20-1/2” under a cream-colored matte, an 8 x 11-1/2” printer’s proof ticket block features Yankee Stadium full vouchers for Games 1, 2, 6, 7 and X, the latter issued in the event of make-up game. The uncut sheet appears pristine with printed seating/event details. A glassine layer features color text and numerals, as well as the club’s stars-and-stripes themed “Top Hat” logo. This is the lone specimen we have encountered. Unlike most "proof" tickets or blocks that have surfaced, this October heirloom includes the elements to facilitate sequential step design and printing of the numbered edition.
