Signed Yankees vs. Reds World Series Game 3 Ticket (1976)

Fine.


October 19, 1976. Single game ticket. Inscribed by Johnny Bench in blue marker: "Johnny Bench / 76 WS MVP." Original white ticket, printed in red, blue and gray, with $15.00 seat price. Near fine, with a slight bit of creasing to upper portion, and a small faint spot of yellow staining. Overall, an excellent example, inscribed by the World Series MVP. In the 1976 World Series, the Cincinnati Reds repeated as champions, sweeping the New York Yankees in four games. The Big Red Machine was unstoppable in the playoffs that year, not losing a single game (they remain the only team to go undefeated in the postseason since the beginning of the divisional era in 1969). Johnny Bench earned World Series MVP honors, partially for his heroics in Game 4, hitting home runs in the 4th and 9th. Bench, arguably the greatest catcher in MLB history, spent his entire career with the Reds and was selected as an All-Star fourteen times. In 1976, he was awarded his final Gold Glove, capping off a ten-year streak of winning the award.
