I recently bought a large lot of Cornell ephemera pulled from an early scrapbook for $10, about 50 pieces. All scrap and of little value, but I like digging through lots like this. Out of the lot I pulled this "Admit One Armory, Nov. 29, 1906" ticket. It had little meaning until I discovered what it was for. It was issued to listen to the wire reports of the 1906 Cornell/Penn football game. You can see it in the picture below, along with some of the other scraps.

The ticket is of a little value, but to tie it to what was going on that day, I find deeply rewarding. Reading this article about the wire reports from the Armory...they sold 2,000 tickets..cheerleaders directed the singing....chairs only for woman and faculty...and experienced wire operators. Consider the unimaginable technology available to us today to watch football wherever and however we want.

one thing vintage tickets do that very few of the other sports memorabilia
can not provide , is have the new owner live vicariously through the original ticket owner , possibly imagining having that ticket in his pocket sitting in the stadium watching the game, maybe witnessing a milestone event , Big HR , No Hitter ,MLB Debut First win Last win or last Game played by a hall of Fame or their favorite player
obviously collecting old baseball items will never die especially vintage quality cards.
But tickets add that extra dimension plus there are significantly less available
so the very limited supply verses the growing demand for the older tickets is enhancing the value, plus condition is not as important as the "actual date of the ticket"so no need to worry to much on condition as it pertains to value if a key date , which helps the novice collector make that purchase

Thought some folks might get a kick out of seeing images of what it looked like to listen/watch the returns from the away football games. These images are later, c. 1935, but you can get an idea. These were taken from the "New" Armory, constructed in 1915 (later called Barton Hall for die hard Grateful Dead Fans).

Yes I know the full ones look great slabbed (so some might say) and command more money, but to me an unused ticket is an object without any relevance…

For me, ticket stubs and scorecards provide contextual enhancement to other items in my collection. Probably the best example I can think of is I have a 1940 World Series Game 7 ticket stub, Pouge’s Department Store scorecard (sold outside the gate) and an original team mailing envelope for World Series tickets in a small display with Paul Derringer’s 1940 World Series cap. Does including these other items with the cap change or enhance the value in any appreciable manner? Maybe not, but as group they enhance the visual appeal of the main artifact (Derringer cap) and stimulate thought about the time and place.

Dave Grob
actually if you notice some of the full stubs have holes punched this was done at the turn stiles as a special accommodation of a fans request who wanted the whole ticket as a memento , also complimentary tickets were also so punched and could not be exchanged if there was a rain out
so these tickets in fact would have been presented at day of game and ticket owner would have been present at the game with full ticket in tow

Any good place to find tickets and programs from the tennis grand slams? I'm working on a Roger Federer project for my wife and need to track down some of those items.

Thanks,
