    In 2016 if you wanted to attend a World Series game at Wrigley field to World Series Phantom Ticketwatch the Cleveland Indians play the Chicago Cubs a Bleacher seat cost you $200. In 1908 the last time the Cubs won the World Series, a general Admission ticket would have set you back $1.00. That's about $26.00 in todays money. If you were lucky enough to have a great Grandfather that attended the game in 1908 and saved the ticket stub, you could have sold it, and be able to afford to see all seven games played at Wrigley and Progressive Field.

World Series ticket stubs are highly collectible, but the slightest flaws could bring the value down significantly. Common flaws include creases, writing, and stubs not torn cleanly. Tickets are printed well in advance in anticipation of a team making the World Series. When the team fails to make it to the Series the unused tickets are called Phantoms. Phantom tickets are popular, but more of a novelty item, and the collectors value is usually less than 20 percent the value of a World Series stub that was used the same year.
World Series Program & Scorecard
 Once inside the ballpark, the first souvenir bought by fans is a World Series Program & scorecard. Most fans kept score, and threw the stub inside the program when they got home, and again like the ticket stubs the collectors value will drop significantly if the program was abused.

The collectors value is not effected for programs that are scored or not. It comes down to collectors preference, and to most collectors it's not important. The overall condition and display of the cover is. Common flaws include; staining, foxing, fading, stains, creases, rips, loose pages, cracked binding, and writing on the cover.
World Series Souvenir Pennant
 Pins and Pennants are the next popular souvenir bought by fans at the ballpark.  Pins & Pennants sold at Stadium during the World Series, that typically feature the two participating teams, would be more rare than the "World Series champs" Pins & pennants that were sold throughout the following season. Picture pennants are the most desired. As with all collectibles, condition is important. Common flaws with pennants are missing ties, pin holes, frying, creases, and crazing or cracked printing. All or any flaws will bring the value down significantly.

 Other highly collectible World Series items that are not made available toWorld Series Press Pins the general public are World Series Press pins and Black Bats. Press Pins which have been issued since 1911, are distributed to members of the media by the host teams for the World Series games. The press pins are made to be worn on the lapel to provide reporters access to cover the game.

The Base Ball Writers Association was founded in 1908 after New York sportswriters became frustrated at constantly losing their seats in the press box at the Polo Grounds. Giants manager John McGraw had a habit of accommodating his many friends by sneaking them into the ballpark and offering them seats in the press box. As the situation became worse, the writers banded together, formed an association, and began the practice of issuing press pins to its members. The press pins were then required for entry into the press box. The system worked, but it wasn't until 1911 that the A's began the tradition of issuing specially made press pins just for the World Series. In 1912 the Giants followed suit and since that time, World Series press pins have been issued every year by each participating club.
World Series Black Bat
  Produced in limited numbers, the World series "Black Bat" was given to participating players from teams in the world series, league officials, high-ranking executives and dignitaries. The bats feature facsimile signatures of the entire team in gold on a dark black ebony bat. Names in script for Hillerich & Bradsby endorsees and block letter for non endorsed players.
 
World Series Black BatBlack bats for the winning teams read World Champions, and National or American League Champions for the losing team. Hillerich & Bradsby initially produced brown bats in 1934 trough 1937, but in 1938 they changed the color scheme to black (Cincinnati in Red)
