Roger Maris’ Pro Debut Game Ticket Stub and Schedule
This 1953 Fargo-Moorhead Opening Day ticket stub represents the debut of Roger Maris. As historic as that is, the stub itself is a work of beauty. Check out the horsehide embossed paper stock, die cut, and fold out section. It’s multifunctional as well – it serves as a schedule in the fold out section and a company directory on its reverse.
The auction included a note from a father to his son, briefly detailing his attendance at the game and witnessing Roger Maris’ first game and hit.
