Default Tickets

Is it me or are the prices for vintage stubs constantly climbing? I have been adding to my collection non stop for a year and have noticed the prices of stubs and programs to "nothing games" almost rise by 50% over the past few months.

No, I've noticed it too, it always make me go back and re-check the game stats, thinking I maybe missed something, but yep always seems to be a nothing overly special game.

These 55 tickets are going for 150 and so are the programs. So crazy. Even 53 tickets are going nuts.

Someone bought a 56 reds stub vs dodgers @ cincy for 20 bucks with 2 punch holes and no Jackie. It's nuts. I might have to sit out a while and wait for the frenzy to chill out.

It depends on the collector as well as the game. 1971 pirate tickets are a good example. I am aware of three other collectors chasing them. If a ticket is listed that all four of us need we artificially inflate the price. Sellers see this and occasionally list a meaningless stub at $100. If a stub is listed we all have it sits there for months at less than $10. So I don't necessarily think inflated prices reflect long term value.

I guess so. That's just annoying.

Default Tickets and Scorecards

I have not followed this segment of the hobby/industry as closely as I have followed others, but there may be a number of factors in play here.

1. Maturing collectors who have completed card sets and looking for something new to collect.

2. Maturing collectors dealing with rising prices/declining availability of game used or stadia items, thus tickets and scorecards represent an affordable vintage collectable by comparison.

3. Maturing team collectors looking to augment collections with scorecards and programs.

4. Maturing collections that now have to deal with space as premium, and tickets and scorecards are not storage space intensive.

5. Newer collectors looking to get into vintage items that are seeking for an affordable vintage collectable that is scalable/check list approach (a season, a player, events).

In some cases and with some collectors, it could be various combinations of the above factors. Just some thoughts for what itís worth..

I have not thought about a lot of those reasons but they all make sense. Good to see people getting more involved in this portion.

My wife has called me many things "maturing" certainly isn't one of them. By the way I recently purchased your book and have greatly enjoyed it. Thanks!

Hi Dave,
+1 Very good. I would agree with all of your observations. The bottom line is that the ticket collector community is absolutely growing.
Personally, I am finding #3 and #4 on your list to both be very prevalent.
