Description

With “Murderers Row” terrorizing American League opponents in 1928, the Yankees hosted the Cleveland Indians on May 11, 1928 and, on the strength of Lou Gehrig’s fourth of a record 23 career grand slams, bested the Tribe, 7-6 to improve to 17-5. Encapsulated and assessed “Authentic” by SGC, this ticket stub was issued in the Bronx as Gehrig connected of Joe Shaute (who had fanned Babe Ruth with the bases loaded in his first-ever big league assignment in 1922) for a decisive four-run clout. The colorful voucher features printed seating/event details, a (home) “Game No. 12” identifier and the facsimile signature of club owner and brewery magnate Jacob Ruppert. In terms of Hall of Fame home run tickets and, more appealing still, Gehrig grand slam keepsakes, this is among the earliest and scarcest survivors.
