Ticket stub from Game 3 of the 1916 World Series between the Brooklyn Dodgers and Boston Red Sox held at Ebbets Field on October 10th. The ticket, which is for a lower-tier reserved seat, reads "Game 1," but the number denotes the first game in Brooklyn, not the first game of the Series. This ticket commemorates the very first World Series game ever played at Ebbets Field and also the first World Series win in franchise history. Brooklyn fans would have to savor it, for it was the team's only victory in the Series that year. Jack Coombs defeated Carl Mays 4-3 in front of 21,087 fans, which was the smallest attendance figure of the Series. Early World Series ticket stubs are rarely found in such extremely high grade. This is by far the finest 1916 example we have ever seen. The ticket (3.75 x 1.75 inches) remains in extraordinary Near Mint condition. This is an exceptional example of this rare, highly prized, and historically significant World Series ticket. Reserve $400. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $2,666
