Description



As Mid-Summer Classic fixtures like DiMaggio and Williams were rendered non-participants (thanks to military obligations) in 1943, the All-Star Game has an unfamiliar look on a couple of fronts. The first-ever installment to be played at night, the '43 exhibition was decidedly strange in that not one New York Yankee player made an appearance (New York skipper Joe McCarthy's response to public outcry of “Yankee favoritism”). The offered ticket stub is encapsulated and graded Authentic by SGC; it was issued at Philadelphia's Shibe Park for that far-from-ordinary battle. Measuring 5 x 2-3/4”, this bright-orange voucher features red-white-and-blue banner and player likenesses, as well as printed seating and event legends and Connie Mack's facsimile signature. The “RAIN CHECK” portion is still secured at its vertical perforation. Although the “Upper Grandstand” voucher is  affected by tiny creases and reverse side residue, it displays quite nicely with bold print and appropriate event details. Additional significance is inherent in that the 1943 contest was the first of a record 24 straight for Stan Musial.
