Four games into the 1958 World Series, the Milwaukee Braves looked like a good bet to repeat as champions. Armed with long-ballers Hank Aaron, Eddie Mathews, Wes Covington and Joe Adcock, plus 20-game winners Warren Spahn and Lew Burdette, Los Bravos held a commanding 3 games to 1 lead over the New York Yankees, who they had defeated in the 1957 Fall Classic. It was just not to be, as the Yankees rallied behind 1958 AL Cy Young award winner "Bullet Bob" Turley, who hurled a shutout in Game 5 and then recorded a save and another win in relief, in Games 6 and 7.
This thrilling seven-game rematch series is recalled in high style, with this 1958 World Series full ticket. Issued at Milwaukee County Stadium, this Game 6 unused ticket is rock solid in presenting as (EX-MT) with vibrant colors, pleasing gloss, sharp graphics and clean surfaces, both front and back. At arm's length, this sturdy survivor presents better than the assigned technical grade, with a fresh off the printing press look; however, upon close inspection the slightest touches of wear are noted on the top and bottom edges, at the point of the perforation at center.
