Do you know anything else about this ticket? I have a similar one and did some research on it. It looks like the House of David rented the Monarchs' lighting system for barnstorming. I can't help but wonder if these stubs are House of David exhibitions where they used the Monarchs lighting, but the Monarchs weren't actually playing.

This is where I found some details:

"The House of David rented Wilkinson’s lighting system to play night games during the early months of their barnstorming season. In time the two teams developed a working relationship that included Thomas Baird doing the booking for both. Sometimes they coordinated barnstorming tours so first one team would route through a state, playing all the local teams, and then the other would follow along the same route. Since the Monarchs and the House of David had great baseball talent, both usually defeated the local teams. When the second team finished the route, they joined and worked their way back along the same route, playing each other."

What a great month for pickups!

Great stuff everyone... I especially love the Orange Crush Sign, the Ty Cobb Fan and the Pirates Flannel.

And Brock... that plaque is so cool. Usually these figural plaster plaques have chips/cracks, but yours looks amazing. I specifically look for this oddball stuff (and have done so for 3 decades). But have never seen that version. Super cool display piece and a GREAT find!

Thanks Mark. If you’ve never seen one I know it must be super scarce. These little plaster and chalk ware pieces just didn’t hold up to the test of time I suppose.

I've been looking for an exceptional early glove for a while and my patience has paid off. Thanks to Tim Whitman for making this beautiful webless crescent pad glove available to me. Pictures don't do it justice. The leather is as soft as the day it was made. It measures about 8.5 x 8 in.

I couldn't help but think the same thing to be honest. The KC Monarchs lighting system was fairly advanced for the day but nothing compared to today's lights.

that is a GREAT item. But I'm pretty sure that it does not say that it is a foul ball. It says that it was a fowl ball. Maybe it hit a bird in mid-flight?

Default HOF Jim Palmer no-hitter full ticket

I'm very happy that I was able to recently upgrade my HOF Jim Palmer no-hit ticket from 8/13/69 @ Baltimore.
Any ticket to this game is exceedingly scarce.

This full ticket to Palmer's no-hitter is the only one that I have ever seen in 45 years of collecting the theme.

As per my usual routine, I played "free Willie" and de-slabbed this beauty!

This roll of 500 stickers appears to have been used in the manufacturing of the 1971 Three Rivers Stadium models. However, the text on the stickers differs from that on the models I have seen. I thought there were three variations of the scoreboard now it appears that there is a version with the Pittsburgh Pirates text on the infield. I know it's silly but now I will be searching for one of those.

Very cool - thanks for sharing! Is it well known around that area of the significance of the spot? Is there any monument or anything pointing out the first recorded baseball game being played there?

Good old Wiki - see photo of the monument along with location in the entry.

Yes, thanks to the other Michael for the Wiki link!

That monument is placed near a major intersection in Hoboken, and each corner has a large stone "base" in the sidewalk. It's pretty cool.

Side note- the monument is not on the exact spot of the first game...that's about 1000 feet closer to the waterfront (right under Maxwell Place), where I used to live.
