Posted By: <b>David Smith</b><p>Hello,<br /><br />New to the board but have been collecting old cards for awhile (didn't start as soon as I should have and missed out on some great things, oh well).<br /><br />I have a question I hope you guys can shed some light on...<br /><br />A few years ago, at a local auction house, I had the chance to buy an 1899 Cincinnati Reds season pass that was made of silver. I didn't do it because I didn't have enough money to meet the reserve. Only one other person was bidding and I don't think they bought it either (after the auction was over).<br /><br />Ever since then I have been trying to find out info on these but have had no luck. My questions are:<br />1) How many were made?<br />2) Who were they issued to?<br />3) How many are known to still exist?<br />4) What are their value?<br />5) Have any sold recently and, if so, for how much?<br /><br />I know Mastro had one in his auction about four or five years ago but I never could find out how much it sold for.<br /><br />Any help with this would be appreciated.<br /><br />Thanks everybody!!

Posted By: <b>hankron</b><p>Silver season passes from all years are scarce, with the earlier the rarer. I can't imagine there would be many more than a handful of the one you mention. I don't know who in general they were given to, but I once had a 1920s Giants silver pass that was given to Mrs. Edd Rousch.<br /><br />There is such a thing as a gold season pass, which is about 100x rarer than a silver season pass. These were genuine gold and were given to super duper VIPs. I saw one that was given to George M. Cohan (a famous early 1900s Broadway musical guy).
