Baseball: 1932 World Series Babe Ruth "Called Shot" Game Ticket Stub. The word "Bleacher" emblazoned on this ticket leads us to wonder how closely that historic home run ball passed the fan who carried the stub in his shirt pocket on October 1st, 1932. Did he see the Sultan of Swat point his finger at him before delivering the most famous of his 714 round trippers? Of course we'll never know, but one thing is for certain--that fan surely got his 1.10 worth of baseball that day.
Courtesy of Pittsburgh Pirates Barney Dreyfuss, principal owner of the Pirates franchise until 1932, also is credited with building Forbes Field. A ticket stub from the 1903 World Series at the old Exposition Park between the Pirates and Boston Americans. Boston won the series, five games to three.
