PLEASE NOTE AN ERROR IN OUR DESCRIPTION OF ITEM #2 BELOW.  THE TICKET IS A FULL TICKET, BUT A PHANTOM TICKET NOT VALID FOR ADMISSION TO THE GAME.  Also, a number of collectors have contacted us regarding our use of the word "phantom," versus "proof," since "phantom" implies that the game was never played.  Regardless of the term, the ticket did not gain admission to the game.

The 1956 World Series is the stuff of legend; a Subway Series rematch between the New York Yankees and Brooklyn Dodgers, the Dodgers defending their hard-fought 1955 title.  The last all-New York world series until 2000, the series featured many highlights, most notably the legendary Game 5 performance of the late Don Larsen, who pitched the only postseason perfect game in history.  

Presented here is an outstanding collection of memorabilia from the Series, highlighted by a complete run of PSA-graded ticket stubs from each game, and the only PSA-graded full ticket to the Larsen game.  The collection includes:  1) Ticket Stub Complete Set (7): One stub from each of the seven games, including the Larsen game 5.  Each of the stubs have been authenticated and encapsulated by PSA, the Game 5 stub grading VG-EX 4.  Other collectible milestones covered in this ticket stub run include Mickey Mantle home runs (Game 1, 4 and 5), Jackie Robinson home run (Game 1), World Series grand slam (Yogi Berra, Game 2), and Whitey Ford World Series wins (Game 3).  2) 1956 World Series Game 5 Yankee Stadium Full Ticket: Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA, the only PSA-graded full ticket at this level to the Don Larsen game. Outstanding condition with light surface and edge wear at the perforation responsible for the grade, but certainly not distracting. Ticket is a phantom ticket, which did not provide admission to the game.  3) 1956 World Series New York Yankee Stadium Button-Tag Messenger Pass: Graded Authentic by PSA, in outstanding condition, unused with original string attached.  4) 1956 World Series Press Pin: EX-MT condition enamel pin, the Yankees' "hat and bat" logo with "1956 World Series" appearing at the top of the hat.  Colorful and clean, with little visible wear.  5) 1956 World Series Official Program: Unscored, in outstanding condition save for a spot of paper loss inside the Dodgers logo, along with some minor edge and spine wear.  6) Multi-Signed 1956 World Series Official Program: Outstanding unscored program signed on the interior pages by members of the New York Yankees: Robert Becker (team Treasurer), Jerry Coleman, Mrs. Casey Stengel, Mickey McDermott, Yogi Berra (HOF), Don Larsen, Mickey Mantle (HOF), and what appears to be an eighth signature, written atop Mrs. Stengel's signature, which may be Casey himself.  LOA from PSA/DNA which does not make note of the Stengel signatures.  An extraordinary collection of desirable memorabilia related to one of the most legendary of all the Yankees/Dodgers World Series. 12 items total.
