1927 was the first year in which an American League team swept the National League champion in the World Series as the Yankees outclassed the Pirates using their "Murderer's Row" lineup. Here's a rare ticket stub from Game 2 of that Fall Classic in Pittsburgh. Costing $3.30 at the time, the ticket was good for one seat in the "Permanent Left Field Stand" at Forbes Field. There is some creasing on the stub and is in VG condition with some pencil writing with the score of game (6-2) and pitchers of record (Pipgras & Aldridge) on the verso. This was the only World Series ever to end with a runner scoring on a wild pitch. Bolstered by Babe Ruth and Lou Gegrig in their primes, the 1927 Yankees are considered by many historians as the greatest baseball team ever.
