The newspaper business enjoyed a bonanza during the 1926 World Series when “Babe” Ruth delivered big time on a promise to a sick boy. Offered is an SGC certified Authentic 1926 WS Game 4 ticket stub. Renowned for his kindness to children, Ruth belted 3 home runs in this game after responding to telegrams from the family of Johnny Sylvester who was critically ill. In one of the most famous anecdotes in baseball history the Babe sent young Johnny two autographed balls and a telegram that read "I'll knock a homer for you on Wednesday". More on our website.

The offered ticket stub presents handsomely with fully legible obverse printing/graphics. The blank reverse is largely covered by album paper/adhesive residue. The newspaper industry had a field day in reporting Ruth’s promise, followed by reports that the boy was miraculously improved following Ruth’s gargantuan hitting feat. Flip notations are as follows "10/6/26 W.S. Ticket Stub Gm. 4 Yankees 10-Card 5 Babe Ruth 3 Home Runs".
