Every once in a while, someone will post a piece of bodywork on eBay that is purported to be from Gordon Smiley's horrific fatal crash at Indy in 1982. The auctions usually get shut down pretty quickly.

But an item up for auction at Lelands right now seems in pretty bad taste for an auction house. Who would actually bid on half the steering wheel used by Art Pollard in his fatal 1973 crash at Indy?

I'm all about preserving history, but there are some things that I just can't see myself doing.

On another note, I feel like prices are creeping up on the T36 cards. A three-card lot ended last night on eBay and I ended up the underbidder. I really thought my bid was strong enough based on what I've gotten other cards for. Maybe it was the condition on these or something. They were all drivers that I've seen often enough that I wouldn't call them "scarce" by any means.

I saw that lot and wondered if you won it.

Default 1959 Daytona 500 Tickets

Hi All,

My Mom picked these up at an estate sale, they were actually packed away in a pocket of a small suitcase that she had purchased. She had know idea the tickets were in there - she said there was also a flattened starfish "super flat" that was in another pocket.

I have looked all over and can not find any sold or for sale examples... I can find some online - one is graded on PSA database... But that's it... Can anyone help her with value?

I am disappointed in my photos that I took (we were in a dark restaurant) as I think they look better than this - brighter blue and a gloss to them. They look like they have been stored for a long time as far as colors not fading...

Awesome ticket stubs, Shawn. I don't think they are worth a ton of money, though. I will say maybe $50-100 each. There was a '59 Daytona 500 ticket on eBay earlier this year that failed to attract any bids at a $195 starting price.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-19...p2047675.l2557

Huggins and Scott auctioned off a PSA 6 from the first Southern 500 at Darlington (1950) a few years ago and that ticket stub brought $220. That was the only 1950 Southern 500 stub that has been authenticated by PSA.

But I have also seen raw stubs from the first Southern 500 fail to sell on eBay priced at under $100.

I need to go through the ticket stubs my dad passed down to me. There were some Indy 500 I believe from the 70s/80s.

No problem. Like I said, that is a best guess. Even Indy 500 ticket stubs don't sell for much money, except for the very early ones from the 1910s and 1920s.

Jon & Eddie,

If someone is going to be able to help me out with these, it is probably you gentlemen. I'm looking for any information you can give me on this card (it is front and back).

I believe that at one time, I read that these 3x4 cards were associated with a board game. They obviously are Parkhurst and a brother to the Hawes Wax cards. I also feel like I read that there were six cards in total. This is all from memory though.

Is there any additional information you can give me and/or any reference to them online? I'd like to get them into my collection on Trading Card Database, but need some more information. In addition to the card pictured I have Bill Holland/Floyd Roberts, Mauri Rose/Tommy Milton, Rodger Ward/Floyd Davis & Mauri Rose, Pat Flaherty/Lee Wallard and Betterhausen In Pits/Bob Sweikert.

Any information is truly appreciated. I hope that everyone has an enjoyable and safe Christmas!

-kin

Kin, I am only somewhat familiar with the cards you posted. I know that 12 of the images from the 1960 Hawes Wax Indy cards were produced on six oversized cards. Here is a Beckett link that references the Canadian game that included the six cards, but I can't be much more helpful beyond that:

https://www.beckett.com/racing/1960/hawes-wax-indy

There isn't much additional information to be found online. A couple of Worthpoint completed auctions make passing reference to the game, but shed no details on a name or anything like that.
