Sept 9th, 1965 – Sandy Koufax is perfect

Sandy Koufax 4th no hitter and perfect game

Text of the 9th inning Vin Scully call

Perfect game program

Perfect game ticket stub

Our consignor’s accompanying handwritten LOA reads, “Here is the Koufax perfect game ticket. Holes in ticket designate that the tickets were complimentary, which makes sense. My father was given the tickets by his company. Needless to say my Dad’s new boss was sorry he gave tickets away to what is considered the greatest game pitched between two pitchers!”

Wiki recount
I did not know this:

Koufax had not won a game in three weeks; not since Juan Marichal hit Koufax’s catcher, John Roseboro, in the head with a baseball bat. The Dodgers were playing at home against the eighth-place Chicago Cubs. Bob Hendley, the pitcher for the Cubs, was just up from the minor leagues and had a 2–2 record.
