Description



Enraged and embarrassed over the “Called Shot” antics of Babe Ruth, the Chicago Cubs were no match for their Yankee counterparts in the 1932 Fall Classic. With eight pinstriper home runs contributing to the Cubs’ 9.26 team ERA, the series was over in four decisive games. Produced in the hope that the North Siders would last just a bit longer than they did, this 1932 World Series Game 5 printer’s proof “phantom” ticket is a scarce October heirloom from one of the most memorable (albeit one-sided) World Series showdowns. Encapsulated and Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA, this one of two specimens at its lofty tier, with none graded higher. The “Upper Grandstand” voucher features printed seating/event details and the facsimile signature of former Cubs President William Veeck, Sr. With brilliant colors, razor sharp edges/corners and strong perforations, this Wrigley Field prize warrants every bit of its technical assessment, and then some!
