Having supplanted the Yankees as the American League's winningest team in both the 1960s and 1970s, the Baltimore Orioles continued their trademark pitching and air-tight defense to secure their sixth pennant and third World Series title in 1983. The offered ticket stub run includes vouchers from the Birds' first two ALCS contests that year, as well as stubs from all (5) Fall Classic tilts. Includes:
1983 ALCS Stubs Issued at Baltimore's since-razed Memorial Stadium, these 1-1/2 x 5-1/4" stubs were good for Game 1 and Game 2, respectively. Both feature printed seating/event legends and logos for both the Orioles and American League. (VG-EX) with a crease on each. The Orioles and Chicago White Sox, incidentally, split these contests before Baltimore prevailed twice at Comiskey Park (stubs not included) to advance to the World Series. Of note is the fact that the Orioles lost Game 1, 2-1, marking the first time in 12 postseason series that they did not win the opening game.
1983 World Series Stubs Includes (1-15/16 x 5-5/16") vouchers for all (5) contests. The front designs show the hosts' and event logos, as well as printed seating/event details. All show (EX) quality with clean admission tears at the perforation. Highlighting this run is the Game 3 stub, which was issued at Veteran's Stadium, as Baltimore's Jim Palmer became the only pitcher in Major League history to win a World Series game in three different decades.
