19th century tickets

I just picked up these two tickets at an antique shop. They are blank backed and on heavy stock. They appear to be 1870-80. Any thoughts?

Hi Gary,
For whatever reason these Dansville Base Ball tickets are somewhat common.
I've always been unsure about the actual date that they were issued. They could be late 1800's or early 1900's. The use of the word Base Ball was actually used as late as the 1930's in some settings, although not that late in the ML.

They are common, oddly, and I have no idea why, but they appear legit. Here are two of mine...they go well with my Dansville uniform.

That jersey is a beaut Joe. Great tickets guys.

Dansville NY is about 15 miles from where I live. Maybe someone from around here came into some and sold them. How long ago did you guys get your tickets? The paper (cardboard) stock does have the feel of 19th century.

Gary,
I received mine as a gift in the last 5-8 years.
I think that they are very cool, BTW.

I got my tix about 6 or 7 years ago. When I got the jersey several years ago I did quite a bit of research on Dansville, NY. It has a very interesting town history. The jersey is c.1910.

A 1918 article from The Wellsboro Agitator newspaper, Wellsboro PA. Wellsboro was a semi-pro team in PA that was in the same leaue as Dansville. It reads "The rejuvenated Dansville team took games over the weekend defeating Wellsboro, 7 to 2 at Wellsboro and handing the Syracuse All-Stars and 18 to 0 trouncing at Dansville on Sunday. Steve Yerkes, former Boston Red Sox, joined Dansville Sunday. He will play in the next game."

Thanks for the information. It's interesting that Dansville featured a major league pitcher in the game. I have a broadside circa 1905 from Mount Morris, my hometown. This game has Al Mattern future major leaguer playing for Mount Morris. Ringers were the order of the day.
Any idea as to real value of the tickets?

I think the tickets are very cool, but not great value. Would be more for someone with a local interest or adding to their 19th century display, but generally I would say $10-20 per ticket.

FWIW, I would agree with Joe.
My estimate would be approx. $20 per ticket at the high end.
