Facts about Ticket Stub collecting

Facts about Ticket Stub collecting
Collecting sports tickets stubs has become a popular hobby today. For as long as fans have been attending sporting events, game tickets have been getting them in. Just as autographs have served as a receipt of an athlete encounter, game tickets serve as a receipt of an event. Plus, game tickets are a snapshot in time as they provide a glimpse into the past via the price of admission, printing quality, paper stock, as well as through the images that adorn them.

A 1928 World Series Game 4 full ticket sold for $2,469 during a recent auction. The game was highlighted by Babe Ruth swatting three home runs.

On October 8, 1956, New York Yankee pitcher Don Larsen registered the only perfect game in World Series history. Many of the fans who witnessed baseball history paid just $7.35 to get through the gates. A full ticket in near-mint condition from this game fetched 29 bids on eBay and sold for $6,000.

Sports Authenticators are now grading tickets which increase the value of the ticket. Collectors should consider the following conditions before purchasing vintage ticket stubs:
Tickets should be unstained with no wrinkles

Tickets that have a clean tear are more valuable than those that are uneven

Dated tickets tend to be more valuable than those that are not. IE: grandstand seating

The history of the game will increase the value of the stub.

Hope this helps!
