A trio of great American League sluggers are recalled, with these (2) 1958 New York Yankees ticket stub and program combos. The "Bronx Bombers" brought home another World Series trophy in 1958, and superstar centerfielder Mickey Mantle was at the heart of things, pounding 42 homers that year. One of his mighty blasts came on July 6th, as attested to by the first ticket stub and program pairing in this offering, which records Mantle's 221st home run. The Yankees opponents that day were the Boston Red Sox and their aging legend Ted Williams, who also blasted a dinger in the game, which is counted as the 477th of his illustrious career. Complementing the July 6th souvenirs, are a July 19th ticket stub and program, from a game against the Cleveland Indians, that saw rising star Roger Maris belt his 28th career home run.
Condition for the offered items is as follows:
7/6/58 Program (VG-EX) with deference to tape stains on the scoring grid pages. The date and outcome are written on the front cover, noted as "July 6, 1958, Red Sox - 10, Yanks - 4".
7/6/58 Ticket stub presents VG details with deference to tape stains.
7/19/58 Program (VG) with deference to tape stains on the scoring grid pages. The date and outcome are written on the front cover, noted as "July 19, 1958, KC A's - 6, Yanks - 4".
7/19/58 Ticket stub presents GD-VG details, with deference to heavy tape stains.
Both programs appear to have been scored by the same fan, and both are accompanied by corresponding New York Herald Tribune newspaper clippings.
