Gaining momentum as the most anticipated event in American sports, the World Series surpassed 1,000,000 fans during its 1912 installment, a tense and taut battle between the New York Giants and Boston Red Sox. Issued at the Polo Grounds for the opener of that showdown, this ticket stub is among the rarest Fall Classic artifacts in the hobby! With printed event and seating details, this scarce survivor features a decidedly hefty “$25.00” price identifier, as well as the facsimile signature of Giants Treasurer John Whalen. As the fervor mounted, Red Sox Hall of Famer Tris Speaker hit a ball completely out of the Polo Grounds during batting practice. The actual game was true to the hype as the Red Sox rallied for a 4-3 win in which Smoky Joe Wood fanned two batters with the potential tying run on third to end the game. The ticket presents minimally at the (GD) plateau, with creases consistent to a day at the ballpark. Of note are the vibrant colors and legible identifiers on both the obverse and reverse.
