As another Fall Classic passes, PSA Lists looks at the Top Ten World Series Tickets of All-Time.
These tickets are all about the unforgettable moments that these World Series provided to fans of the game.
The beauty of ticket collecting is that each game ticket is a tangible artifact from the game in question. In nearly all cases, these tickets were stuffed in the jacket
pockets or hung around the necks of fans who were witness to some of the greatest moments in baseball history.
That added historical value makes these collectibles even more special in our eyes.
These tickets are listed in reverse-chronological order.
After batting .475 with three home runs and seven RBI, David Freese was named the World Series Most Valuable Player, having already won the NLCS MVP award - the first player in
history to win both awards. His walk-off in the back-and-forth Game 6 forced the decisive Game 7, which the Cardinals won 6-2 over Texas.
In Game 7, New York took a 2-1 lead into the ninth, when Arizona scored with a Tony Womack RBI double to tie the game and then with the bases loaded Gonzalez popped a
bloop single to left to score Jay Bell. The Diamondbacks won the game 3-2 with Randy Johnson taking the victory to become the first pitcher to win three games in a single
World Series since Detroit Tigers Mickey Lolich in 1969.
Joe Carter earned his place in the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame when he hit the most significant home run in Canada's history and only the second walk-off World Series
clinching round-tripper in Major League Baseball history. Who could forget the blast and then the ecstatic Carter leaping and jumping in absolute jubilation as he rounded
the bases to win Game 6 by a score of 8-6?
Who can forget the hobbled Gibson lumbered around the bases, in obvious pain, touching home plate with his entire team surrounding him and the LA fans in an absolute frenzy?
This game winner will long be remembered as one of the greatest and most improbable home runs in World Series history.
Bill Buckner’s error on Mookie Wilson's slow roller up the first base line allowed the Mets to walk off and force a Game 7 in the 1986 World Series. The blunder is
perhaps one of the most memorable errors in World Series history and perpetuated the "Curse of the Bambino." Sadly, because of the error, Buckner was vilified by Boston
fans and virtually driven from the city as he was traded to the California Angels the following year.
The New York Yankees and Reggie Jackson made all sorts of news throughout the 1977 season, but nothing more significant than during Game 6 of the 1977 World Series.
Mr. October was born this day! Going back to Game 5, Reggie hit four consecutive home runs on four straight swings. (Jackson did not swing the bat in his second inning, four-pitch walk.)
In the bottom of the twelfth inning of Game 6 of the 1975 World Series, history was made with one of the greatest moments ever as Carlton Fisk took Pat Darcy's 1-0 pitch
down the left field line. The ball appeared to be hooking foul, but Fisk seemed to will the ball into fair territory waving to ball in as it caromed off the left field
foul pole to tie the Series at three apiece. The video has become one of the most iconic moments in the history of Major League Baseball and is inevitably among any
World Series highlight reel.
The 1960 World Series pitted the heavily favored American League Champion New York Yankees, who won seven of the previous eleven World Series, against the National League Champion
Pittsburgh Pirates, who were making their first appearance in the Fall Classic since 1927.
The Series all came down to the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 7 with the game and the series tied.
Pirates' second baseman Bill Mazeroski led off the bottom of the ninth against the Ralph Terry. Maz blasted Terry’s 1-2 pitch over the left field wall to win the game 10-9 and
the series 4 games to 3.
Bill Mazeroski fulfilled every boy’s dream when he hit that home run and it remains the only walk-off home run in Game 7 to win a World Series.
The 1956 World Series was business as usually for the New York Yankees as they, once again, knocked off the Brooklyn Dodgers, first-time defending champions. However, there was one
glaring difference about this 7th "Subway Series," as Yankees' hurler Don Larsen made history in Game 5 throwing a perfect game against the Dodgers, the only perfect game in the
history of the World Series and, until 2010, the only no-hitter in postseason history.
Baseball has endured for more than 150 years and offered some of the most magnificent moments in sports history, but none more mythical than "Babe Ruth's Called Shot."
His much-debated and relatively ambiguous gesture at the plate during the 1932 World Series will go down in history as one of the most amazing, yet most disputed moments in baseball folklore.
Through the years, amateur video and photos have emerged, but no single shot or frame reveals a definitive gesture of "calling his shot." Babe Ruth was larger than life during his
life and figure of mythical proportion. Hollywood has perpetuated this event both in cartoons and on the big screen. Similar depictions can be seen in the 1984 film The Natural,
the 1989 film Major League and the animated series The Simpsons– "Homer at the Bat." Babe Ruth's achievements and heroics will withstand the test of time, going down in the
annals of baseball lore as almost fables and few moments in his storied career will be more remembered than his 1932 World Series "called shot."
