Posted By: <b>Rob D.</b><p>A trivia-question post on the dark side of the board prompted me to dig out a ticket stub from Bob Feller's opening-day no-hitter. Because tickets and ticket stubs are among my favorite areas of collecting memorabilia, I'd love to see other stubs or full tickets from memorable sporting events. I'll scan and post a few more of my Indians ones later tonight. In the meantime, here's Rapid Robert's no-no:<br /><br /><img src="http://members.aol.com/wolfie51sb/felleropener.jpg"><br />

Posted By: <b>Jodi Birkholm</b><p>Wow! Imagine seeing that historic bare-knuckled bout for $15! Then again, taking inflation into consideration, one wonders what $15 1892 dollars would translate into in today's economy. Either way, certainly not the kind of money that ringside seats fetch nowadays.

Posted By: <b>Rob D.</b><p>Jodi,<br /><br />$342.03 in 2007, according to this <a href="http://www.westegg.com/inflation/">Web site</a>, which seems pretty cool.

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Not really a milestone ticket...Connie brought his boys in to town to play against the "kids". Amongst the "kids" in that game were Bobby Shantz and Nellie Fox.<br /><br /><a href="http://s22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Nebraska%20Baseball%20Memorabila/?action=view&current=1948asticket.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Nebraska%20Baseball%20Memorabila/1948asticket.jpg" border="0" alt="1948 Exhibition Ticket Stub"></a>

Posted By: <b>Jodi Birkholm</b><p>My bad, guys. Perhaps I should have read the ticket <i>in its entirety</i> ! <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14> I'm not as up on my boxing history as I should be, but Sullivan <i>was</i> the last bare-knucked champ from what I remember. Wasn't that bout also against Gentleman Jim?<br /><br />Rob, <br /><br />Cool! I'm really going to get a lot of use out of that site, as I ask myself similar questions quite a bit for some reason.
