The 1958 National Football League Championship Game was played on December 28, 1958 at Yankee Stadium in New York City. It was the first NFL playoff game to go into sudden death overtime. The final score was Baltimore 23, New York 17. The game has since become widely known as "The Greatest Game Ever Played". This game also marked the beginning of the NFL's popularity surge, and eventual rise to the top of the United States sports market. A major reason was that the game was televised across the nation by NBC. Baltimore receiver Raymond Berry recorded 12 receptions for 178 yards and a touchdown. His 12 receptions set a championship record that would stand for 55 years, until broken by Demaryius Thomas' 13 receptions in Super Bowl XLVIII.

This 1958 NFL Championship Game ticket stub is in great condition aside from the score (Colts - 23, Giants - 17), being written in pen on the back. This ticket stub has been graded "Authentic" and encapsulated by PSA.
