The toast of their respective circuits throughout the 1940s and '50s, Stan Musial and Ted Williams repeatedly tried (along with the rest of the Major League combatants) to whisk the October spotlight away from its seemingly annual target in the Bronx. The offered (2) ticket stubs were issued for Musial's and Williams' first-ever Fall Classic endeavors. Includes: 1942 Game 1 issued at St. Louis' Sportsman's Park for the September 30 series opener between the host Cards and New York Yankees, this peach-colored admission voucher features printed seating and event legends, an event-themed logo and the facsimile signature of Redbirds' team President Sam Breadou. The "$1.15" bleacher stub has rain check details on the reverse and shows (VG-EX) quality with a nearly indiscernible crease. In his World Series debut, the 21-year-old Musial went 0-for-4 with a walk that afternoon; 1946 Game 1 a Sportsman's Park-issued "Reserved Seat" ticket for the October 6 opener between the visiting Red Sox and host Cardinals. Seating and event legends appear on the front, while rain check details are printed on the reverse, and the facsimile signature of Breadou appears on both sides. With relatively strong edges, the item shows minimally (EX) quality. Following a three-year military hiatus, the 27-year-old Williams was back in form in '46 and went 1-for-3 with two walks in the series opener. He was to collect just four singles in his remaining 22 at-bats, however, as the BoSox bowed in the seven-game series, Williams' lone Fall Classic opportunity.
