    1918 WORLD SERIES TICKET STUB. Deferring to much larger seating capacity, the Cubs of 1918 hosted their World Series home games in Comiskey Park. During the regular season, the Chicago Nationals played in Weeghman Park, which was terribly unsuited for the throngs expected for this Series. Money, gained by virtue of greater gate receipts, proved mightier than victory as the Cubs were vanquished by Ruth and the Red Sox that year. After all, Boston had experience in Caminsky, and the Cubs had not. One of the remaining tangibles from that tilt is this ticket stub from Game 3. This "ducat" is missing a piece from the upper left corner, and it’s been folded into quarters -- probably by the exasperated Cub fan losing that day. And though we concede that it’s about Good, there are only a pitiful few that have survived the ages.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
