Description



Anyone who has ever held a rain check knows that baseball games get washed out during the long course of a season. Ride a wave of rainouts with this prime selection of gameday souvenirs from the height of the glorious Babe Ruth/Lou Gehrig era, with this 1930 New York Yankees "phantom" press pass lot of (6). All graded in Mint to Gem Mint condition by PSA, these pristine unused passes were issued to a member of the working press for regular season games that did not take place on their scheduled dates. Each of these vibrant yellow coupons bears the matching identifier "Book No. 298" at lower left on the obverse. Likewise all are printed with "Press - Season 1930 / American League Baseball Club of New York" along with a disclaimer and a facsimile signature of team owner Jacob Ruppert, while the reverses bear home game season schedules. As noted on the PSA grading labels, each pass is numbered for a different game as follows:


Game 13 PSA (MINT 9) with label notations "Phantom - No Game Played on May 8 (Game #13)"


Game 20 PSA (MINT 9) with label notations "Phantom - No Game Played on May 15 (Game #20)"


Game 43 PSA (GEM MINT 10) with label notations "Phantom - No Game Played on July 1 (Game #43)"
