Description

Adhering to the “all hands on deck” mantra in the 1972 World Series, Oakland employed starter and defending Cy Young Award winner Vida Blue in a relief role in the opener. Blue, who was to notch two lifetime regular season saves over a 17-year career, was true to the task, holding the Reds scoreless over two-and-a-third innings and getting Pete Rose to ground out to end the game with the potential tying run on third base. It was Blue’s second postseason save in three days. Encapsulated and Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA, this full ticket was issued at Riverfront Stadium for that series opener. The crisp “Field Box” voucher features printed seating/event details, a Reds logo and a scenic photo of the Ohio River with the ballpark in the backdrop. With sturdy perforations and sharp edges/corners, the item presents beautifully, though a handwritten notation on the reverse prevents higher technical assessment.
