Nice Dewey. I have that on my want list also. I did hear that story about the "high five" too!

Something with more long-term, pop-culture implications also happened during this game. Glenn Burke was credited with creating the high-five celebration during this game when he gave Dusty Baker a high-five after his record breaking HR.

Default Puljos 3000

I missed the game due to work and was happy to learn that a good friend attended. When I called him about his stubs he indicated that he threw them away. The next day he called and told me that he found them stuffed in his coat pocket. Not the greatest of shape but its nice to have friends

My Quest to collect all 153 stubs from the Pirates 1971 season is entering the fourth year and has essentially grinded to a halt. This stub I picked today is the first in many months. More importantly it is the first Expos 1971 home ticket I have seen. It seems that home Expos and Padres tickets are quite difficult to find. Has anyone else noticed this or is it my imagination? If so is this scarcity only for 1971?

The 1971 season wasn't very kind to either the Padres (61-100) or the Expos (71-90). I don't think a lot of people saved those stubs...but I'm sure there are a few out there. It's probably going to be a grind, but that will make it even more rewarding.

Mike, it's not your imagination. Both Expos & Padres vintage tickets are exceedingly scarce. One additional note: The large majority of Expos tickets from this era are generic Ticketmaster variety, making the one that you just found all the more sweet. Congrats on your find!

By the way, I can feel your pain with regards to having a long slog between finds. My friend Tony just found one Nolan Ryan appearance ticket that has been on my want list forever (1979 @ TEX, another very challenging place to find tickets during the 1970's, BTW).

After 46 years of collecting this theme, I only need 48 of Nolan's 807 career regular season pitching appearances. My goal is to find 4-5 new ones every year, but I find that even finding that many is a genuine challenge...

Scott, just curious, but of those 48 that you need, is there any one particular year that is the most troubling (more tickets needed for that year)? Also, we should either use this thread or start one where people can list the tickets they need. Never hurts to have a few hundred extra pairs of eyes on the look out. LOL

Hi Mike,
Good question, and for my collection the years aren't really the issue.
FYI, it's more of a challenge based on where the game was played & the number of people that attended the games.

Certain teams, such as ATL, CLE, KC, OAK, SEA, SD, HOU, MN, MONT, ST. L, TOR and TEX have always really provided a huge challenge for me and other collectors.
Some of these teams generally had historically low attendance in general, as well as some of the games being played in inclement weather I suspect are the some of the major factors that create difficulty for the collector. In addition, fans in certain cities are "savers" of tickets and memorabilia, where fans in other cities for whatever reason do not save their ticket stubs as frequently.

Not a bad idea about providing a want list on this thread. I will consider doing that & maybe we should all do the same as a one-off. I have found our collector community on net54 to be exceedingly helpful on networking if they know what you are looking for.

I already showed this ticket in the May pickups thread, but seeing how it's probably the best I'll ever stumble into within my collection focus, I'll post it here as well. Lately I've taken to assembling relevant visuals with a memorabilia piece and printing it to stick in a binder so I can put the original away. So here, along with the July 19, 1902 stub is a clipping from the NY World about the game, and two items (not mine) from Roger Bresnahan's scrapbooks. I'm fairly certain the group photo at bottom right was taken at the Polo Grounds on July 18, the day before McGraw, McGinnity, Bresnahan, McGann, and Cronin's first game as Giants. I don't know how McGann managed to get into a new uniform before the others, but there it is. If you look closely at the photos in the newspaper clippings, definitely taken at the PG, you'll see they are wearing the same uniforms as in the group photo.

The lineup on July 19 included McGraw as manager + playing shortstop, McGinnity pitching, Bresnahan catching, and McGann at 1B.
