I can promise you that each ticket is worth more than the $3-whatever that was paid for them.

Really great graphics on the tickets too. Many old tickets are plain. Those are beauts.

Default Omahogs ticket book

I am late to the game contributing to this thread, but I just returned from a long business trip.

I'm a vintage baseball ticket guy of over 39 years, but I can't recall ever seeing any of these 1895 Omahog tickets or ticket books in my past. I whole-heartedly agree with some of the posts, i.e. to:

1) Leave the ticket booklet intact!!
2) Do not spend money to PSA grade tickets that are certainly self- explanatory given the context of the entire booklet
3) Graphics are both unusual, vintage and very cool!

That being said, placing a value on an item such as this is not easy given that is both scarce and may have a fairly narrow collector base. If this were a ticket book from the same vintage, but let's say a National League team, my gut is that this could possibly bring $2,000- $3,000 in an auction. If I were a collector of all things Omahogs, I could see paying perhaps $1,000- $1500 in a major auction. Like all things in an auction setting, you have to have multiple bidders participate in order to get top dollar. Most collectors would have difficulty trying to determine value.

I hope you find this helpful. No matter what, the booklet is a fantastic find and thanks for posting pictures!

After viewing Lance's link there is another ticket book available (#77), The OP's friend is #89.
Who knows, there could be multiples out there, so I'd wait to see what some have traded for.
Book #77 on eBay starts the bidding at $500 (w/ no bids as of now)
Book #89 had a Buy It Now at $5,000, and is no longer listed.

The guy who listed the $500 book says he has multiples...how many? Who knows? An entire box full of these things may have been found..Omaha had troubles that year and moved mid-season to Denver. I think they're extremely cool, but since Omaha is not my main focus I'll wait for the law of diminishing returns to set in.

Sent in the book to be graded. Below is a list of grades and scans of the pics. Probably going to sell some via ebay, others via a high end auction house, and keep the rest. PM if you want more info...

Submitted on 1/10/12 under the 20 day estimated service level. Popped moments ago (2/24/12). A bit overdue, but worth the wait. About what I expected. May be of interest for vintage ticket collectors. Great grades for 117 years old!!!!

So despite all the advice you received, you tore the book apart anyhow. What a shame.

You actually probably reduced the grade in the process of tearing them out of the book (small creases where you grabbed and where it tore). Also, now that there are 20 individual tickets versus 1 booklet makes them that much less rare and unappealing.

He's has one ticket on eBay with a BIN of something like $5,000.
Give me a break! Good luck "Meatloaf"!
