Winning bid: $204
This is a ticket stub from the 9/13/60 baseball game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Philadelphia Phillies at Connie Mack Stadium. Sandy Koufax wins career game #36/165 in what was almost his last career win!
Here's what Sandy himself said about that 1960 season:
Afterr the final game that season (10/2/60), I threw all my baseball stuff away, left the clubhouse and didn't think I'd ever come back. I even went into business, but wasn't crazy about it. Then I decided I hadn't worked hard enough, so next spring I reported to Vero Beach. Our clubhouse man, Nobe Kawano, handed me the gear and said, 'I took all your stuff out of the garbage."' Pretty good idea to stick with baseball as Sandy would win 129 games over the next 6 years and cement himself as one of the greatest pitchers in the history of MLB.
