Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Is there any type of online guide to help date ticket stubs? I have a bunch that I can guesstimate, but I would like to be able to pinpoint the exact game for the stubs if possible.<br /><br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Tickets%20and%20Stubs/ts5.jpg"> <img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Tickets%20and%20Stubs/ts4.jpg"> <img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Tickets%20and%20Stubs/ts2.jpg"><br /><br />I have a whole bunch more, but if anyone can tell me what the dates of these tix are I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Posted By: <b>Mark L</b><p>While we're waiting for an expert, I'll rely on the Phillies' Presidential "terms" to hypothesize that the one of the bottom with Baker's signiture is 1911-1930 and that the one on the top right with Nugent's signiture is 1933-1942. Since the Nugent ticket includes a $.14 tax and since that tax does not appear on the Connie Mack ticket, I suppose that the Mack ticket is earlier than the Nugent ticket. I know it's not much but the experts must be out at a cookout.

Posted By: <b>barrysloate</b><p>I don't think you can ever get a precise year if it is not dated.<br /><br />I have seen stubs that read, for example, Friday, July 15, and you can then go to a perpetual calendar and find out when July 15 came on a Friday. Save that, I think the best you can do with most stubs is date them within a few years. Yours looks like it's 1910 or earlier, but I can't be sure (I meant the one with Connie Mack, I don't have a feel for the others. And I may be way off on this one too. It just looks early).<br /><br />Skip it, it's later. I haven't a clue. Sorry.
