Description

While they had met seven separate times over a 16-year span, the Brooklyn and Bronx rivalry entered its final chapter in the 1956 Fall Classic. In an anti-climactic ending to a tense battle marked by Don Larsen’s perfect game and Clem Labine’s 10-inning shutout to force a decisive Game 7, the Yanks prevailed, 9-0 in that winner-take-all battle, ending the storied cross-borough rivalry and the career of Jackie Robinson. Encapsulated and Graded EX 5 by PSA, this full printer’s proof ticket was the prototype for “Obstructed View” vouchers sold in Flatbush that afternoon. The crisp item features printed event details and Dodgers cap and script-style logos. This is the lone example at its tier with only three graded higher. The absence of specific seating identifiers and hole punchings (likely rendered at the Ebbets Field box office) confirm this keepsake’s status as a printer’s proof ticket.
