Description

In a rare lull in franchise fortunes, the 1925 New York Yankees endured a rare losing season – the franchise’s first since 1918 and its last until 1965. Cited for the downfall was the absence of Babe Ruth, who was hospitalized from April 9 until May 26, with excessive eating and drinking (among other vices) said to be the culprit. Following his return, Ruth slumped to 25 home runs and 67 RBI, by far his lowest totals as a full-time player. Encapsulated and Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA, this Yankee Stadium ticket stub was issued for an Independence Day twinbill against the Philadelphia Athletics. The lone graded example, the “LOWER BOX” voucher features printed seating/event details and the facsimile signature of owner Jacob Ruppert. Having entered the day 16-1/2 games behind the Senators, the Yanks were unable to gain ground as they split the doubleheader. Herb Pennock fired 15 scoreless frames to earn the win in the opener, but the A’s, behind a Mickey Cochrane homer, took the nightcap, 8-5. For the day, Ruth collected three hits and Lou Gehrig added two.
