Well-worn ticket stub from Game 1 of the 1919 World Series, at Redland Field.  Eddie Cicotte took the mound, and on the second pitch, hit Cincinnati's Morrie Rath in the back with a pitch - a signal to gambler Arnold Rothstein that the fix was in, and the White Sox would be throwing the game.  At the end of the contest, Cincinnati had won the game, 9-1, with Cicotte giving up 6 runs in 3 2/3 innings.

The stub is well-worn, with a significant vertical tear repaired with clear tape on both front and back.  Additional light spots of paper loss appear on the reverse.  Regardless, a ticket stub with extreme historical significance, the first game of a World Series that remains infamous even today.
