On April 15, 1951, the Yankees played an exhibition game against the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets field. In those first few at bats in a professional ball park as a rookie, Mickey Mantle hit his first Home Run (unofficial) in the 8th inning. It is the earliest Mantle home run in a major league ball park and certainly an indication of what was to come over his career! Offered is a rare Brooklyn Dodgers ticket stub from that historic game. The stub (1.25x3.5"), issued for a "Lower Stand" seat, is dated "Sun., April 15, 1951" on the front. In Very Good condition, with a few light creases throughout.
