The names Connie Mack, John McGraw, Frank Baker, Eddie Collins, Christy Mathewson, Rube Marquard, Eddie Plank, Chief Bender, Bill Klem and Tommy Connolly ring some big bells in the annals of Major League Baseball. All ten of these HOFers participated in the 1911 World Series, which featured the Philadelphia A's vs the New York Giants. Frank "Home Run" Baker rang out the loudest, earning his nickname at this event with a .375 series average and dingers off Mathewson and Marquard, that paved the way for the A's victory.

The bells are ringing long and loud for this incredible souvenir from this noteworthy "Fall Classic". Featured is a 1911 WS full ticket good for Games 1, 2 and 3 at the Polo Grounds. The games in question were actually games 1, 3, and 5 of the series, as noted on the PSA label that designates this antique ticket as "Full, Authentic". The series alternated between the Polo Grounds as noted and Shibe Park in Philly for Games 2, 4, and 6. A couple of hole-punches and a fold line at center serve to provide period authenticity to this ancient and nearly impossible to find postseason memento.

The ticket obverse is printed with a facsimile signature of Giants team owner/president John T. Bush and the reverse is printed with a schedule showing the dates and locations for the 1911 WS games, the last three of which had to be rescheduled due to six straight days of rain that caused the longest delay in WS history. Participating in this classic matchup was Connie Mack's famous "$100,000 Infield" which in addition to Home Run Baker and Eddie Collins, also included Stuffy McInnis and Jack Barry. Winners of 4 AL pennants and 3 championships during the period 1910-1914, this celebrated quartet was the core of the A's second of three great dynasties under Mack.
