The Polo Grounds, as most know it, was actually Polo Grounds (III) and started out as Brotherhood Park for the NY Giants of the Players’ League in 1890, but by 1891, the Giants of the National League moved in and stayed for the next 67 seasons. With the stadium pressed hard against Coogan’s Bluff in Manhattan, the original owner of this superb ticket stub would have watched the Giants between 1895 and 1902. The ticket’s date was determined by the listed president, Andrew Freedman, who owned the team during those seasons. Any ticket stub from that era is a great find, but this particular ticket stub is in absolutely gorgeous condition. It measures 3-1/2 x 1-1/2” and shows no creasing and very little signs of aging. Across the top of the stub are the words, "New York Base Ball Club - Polo Grounds" with a baseball and a pair of crossed bats.
