Default Sandy Koufax 3rd no-hitter ticket

Hi Mike,
Great questions!
FYI, many Phillies tickets from this era are undated or have stamped dates.
In my experience finding ANY dated ticket to this game is an extremely tough find, period, in spite of the fact that over 29,000 were in attendance that night. In terms of findability, Koufax's 3rd no-hitter is WAY tougher than any of his other 3 no-hitters at LA. LA collector's saved these tickets and virtually all of them had printed dates.
By 1964 Koufax was a huge draw at the gate, wherever he pitched.

To put it in perspective, I have seen/heard of perhaps 8-10 tickets to this 3rd no-hitter game surfacing in the hobby in all the years that I have collected this theme (over 45 years). I suspect that about 7-8 are of this variety, but that's a guess. The purple stamped date ticket is a bleacher ticket from the left center field portion of the stadium that held about 5,000 fans and full capacity.
I will tell you that I receive inquiries from collectors several times a year looking for a ticket to Koufax's 3rd no-hitter. It continually seems to be one that is on collector's want lists.
This does indeed upgrade a stamped version of this ticket that I have in my collection, but I plan to hang onto it because of sentimental value. This cemented a great collecting friendship long ago with Koufax specialist and net54 board member Phil Paul.
Additionally, the patron that owned this stamped date version ticket, Joseph Goldstein, was Jewish & obviously very proud of Sandy Koufax's triumph and his own ethnicity that night. So much so that he signed his own name on the back. So many great themes, that I personally love as a collector, intersect with this particular example of this ticket...

Default Riverfront Stadium

My Cincinnati Reds collecting interest (with few exceptions) ends with the 1970season. Thought this was a nice contextual piece for Riverfront Stadium. I have a few bats like this (first player to bat at a new stadium). There are any number of team/ball park collectors, but what seems to escape them until pointed out (CPT Obvious here), is that the first player to bat in a new ball park is going to be from the visiting team.

Cool bat -- particularly in context. And the accompanying photo and text are also very cool. What program are you using to put that together?

Thanks. I do these in PowerPoint. For may of these I end up saving them as a .pdf file and then take them to a local FEDEX Office Center where I have them printed and mounted/laminated on museum quality foam board. Size is around 8x10 and they look great with the item. Very affordable if you can do the design/graphic work yourself.

WWII signed baseball with signatures of Vince DiMaggio, Red Ruffing and some others. Was torn on pursuing this because the price tag was bumped significantly by the presence of "Wimpy" Quinn's signature. Quinn was not a particularly memorable player, (pitched 5 innings total) but due to his untimely passing in 1954, he is one of the rarest signatures of the 40's.

Given that he played ball while in the Military, WWII signed balls may be the most common source of his autograph. It is actually the second one I own. The other is a GU ball from the 1945 Navy All-Star Game.

Default HOF Sandy Koufax beautifully scored 1st & 3rd no-hitter scorecards!

I just added really nice scored programs to HOF Sandy Koufax's 1st and 3rd career no-hit games from 1962 and 1964, respectively. The patron's scoring job on both of these is exceptional, IMHO.
It should be noted that the 3rd no-hitter scorecard in 1964 is extremely challenging to find in any condition from what I hear.
Many thanks to Phil Paul for passing the baton and allowing me to add these to my collection...

The 3rd no-hitter scored program pairs up nicely with the 3rd no-hitter ticket that I picked up in September as well.
I guess September is Sandy Koufax pickup month for me.

Great finds. Well and neatly scored programs are fantastic, first-hand records of the game. That these relate to such historic games just makes them that much cooler. Congratulations.
