Description

In the throes of the Great Depression, baseball suffered during the 1930s. American League franchises playing against the New York Yankees suffered, as well, during that decade, as evidenced by the Bronx Bombers’ five World Series titles and aggregate 970 wins. This ticket was issued at Cleveland’s cavernous Municipal Stadium for the August 2, 1936 game between the Indians and New York Yankees. Christened by the Indians in 1932, the venue was subsequently vacated in favor of League Park, as attendance had plummeted in the wake of the Great Depression. Beginning in 1936, however, the Indians held Sunday and Holiday home games at Municipal Stadium. As the offered stub was issued, the Tribe was in second place, trailing the Pinstripers by 9-1/2 games. Though they tallied single runs in the eighth and ninth innings to force extra frames, the Indians could only manage a 4-4 tie that afternoon, as darkness halted play after 16 innings. In the game, rookie Joe DiMaggio tripled for the Yanks and Lou Gehrig drove in his 100th run of the season in a 3-for-6 performance en route to MVP honors. The crisp voucher features printed seating/event details, razor sharp edges corners and a clean reverse. With strong perforations and an uneven admission tear, this relic is deserving of a lofty technical grade.
