Suspicion clouded Game 2 of the 1922 World Series, which ended in a tie despite sunny conditions. Just three years removed from the “Black Sox” scandal, Commissioner Landis ordered the $120,000 in gate receipts to go toward World War I charities, thus dispelling any improprieties by Giants owner and known gambler Charles Stoneham. Encapsulated and assessed “Authentic” by PSA, this ticket stub was issued for that controversial game and is one of seven at its tier with none graded higher.

The crisp voucher features printed seating/event details and the facsimile signature of Yankees owner and brewery magnate Jacob Ruppert as the Yanks were officially the "home" team that day at the common venue. The 3-3 deadlock, incidentally, marked the third and final tie in World Series history.
