I discovered this unredeemed (intact) Game 1 ticket to the 1945 World Series between the Tigers and Cubs when my dad died. Briggs Stadium was re-named Tiger Stadium, and has been demolished and replaced at another location by Comerica Field.
A few years ago, a local museum hosted a baseball exhibit where this ticket was displayed with a game-worn Hal Newhouser jersey. He pitched for the Tigers in Game 1.
