The road to the St. Louis Cardinals first ever championship went through baseball's version of the "Valley of Fear". After besting the Cincinnati Reds by two games to claim the NL Pennant, the Cardinals had to face "Babe" Ruth and the New York Yankees in the 1926 World Series. This match-up went the distance, with the "Redbirds" emerging victorious in a seven-game "Fall Classic", that saw an incredible total of fifteen Hall of Famers participate, including two of the umpires. Preserve this historic Cardinals victory, with this 1926 World Series Game 6 ticket stub from Yankee Stadium. A lopsided 10-2 score saw Grover Alexander earn the win, while nearly everybody in the St. Louis lineup hit safely, with Rogers Hornsby driving in three runs. This was Hornsby's only World Series championship, and it came during his only full season as a player manager for the Cardinals. A scarce survivor, this ancient stub has a near complete tear at the junction of the vertically and horizontally oriented obverse printed sections, and there is a small piece of tape on the revers, over the Rain Check section. Despite these conditions, which force a (PR) rating, this ancient ticket remains reasonably attractive, with bold graphics.
