First I do not like the op Ticket. I had at one time a run of Harvard Yale Stubs from the late 1890's to the early teens. And this one dose not look right. Harvard Vs Yale was a big deal right from the start. Red vs Blue and the ticket backs had a had a very specific design. If you search ebay you will see what I mean.

I believe the main reason why the OPs ticket is so drastically different is because it was a baseball ticket. The football tickets were much more ornate.
Always looking for Army-Navy and Army-Notre Dame tickets and programs from before 1930.

Default PERFORATION ON tickets

My thoughts on the lack of perforations was that this was something done after the printing process, probably by a tool that once clamped upon a ticket created perforations. That just a theory on my part.
PERFORATION ON tickets and many other paper products first began in the late 1870's in the US , the Perforation process was part of the printing done with a long comb like metal blade that indented the paper , the press sheet of up to 20-30 full tickets would pass below the blade stopping as the blade came down.
the perf was added so the turnstile ticket collector, bus driver , train guard, could return the rain check part in timely and neater fashion , which was also proof of entry, seat position and a raincheck if needed .
many people or ticket collectors would fold at the perf line to make it easier to tear evenly , obviously judging by the 1000's of uneven tears this may have not been a common practice ,

1923 Real stub. Dotted line visible on one side, but not perforated. Appears to be paper mounted on thick card stock. I did not attend this contest but Yale won 27-0

1968 Real stub. 45 years later Harvard beat Yale 29-29. A sad day in New Haven indeed.

All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

Only 37.10% crazy based on recent polling data, but still a weird dude.
