This is my favorite ticket in my collection. It was used in the recent Roberto Clemente calendar. I doubt Iíll ever slab it as I donít intend to sell it.

I guess I've been at this too long. It's a whole new "collecting" world. As Bob Dylan wrote, "I can't stay in here, ain't it clear, that I just don't fit."

Just for the hell of it, though, here's my most prized ticket. One of these just sold in Heritage's February 26, 2022 auction for $108,000. Because, you know, Gehrig. You'll notice that mine's not slabbed.
"To each his own" and yet you felt the need to criticize something I posted and deem it "nothing special or rare" -- maybe it is to me.

I'll assume your ticket is fake because, you know, you don't feel the need to increase its value significantly but protecting it and authenticating it in a slab. Must not be that special after all.

Quite right.

Only special and/or rare tickets get slabbed.
All non-slabbed tickets are either
a) not special and/or rare, or
b) if obviously special, are fake.

Default Roki Sasaki Perfect Game ticket- Japan

I just received this full, unused Season Field Box ticket to Roki Sasaki's 19K Perfect Game on April 10th, 2022 from Japan.

Although this game was not played in the ML it is arguably the best pitched game ever in professional baseball by many current metrics.

Roki Sasaki's perfect game was the first to be pitched in the Japanese major leagues since 1994.
The 20 yr. old Chiba Lotte Mariner RHP struck out 19 of the 27 Orix Buffalo batters he faced in the game.
The 19K's also set the Japanese majors record for most strikeouts in a perfect game and surpassed SF Giants pitcher Matt Cain and Sandy Koufax's standard of 14K's in a perfect game.
Sasaki struck out 13 consecutive batters in this game, which is just crazy!


Even more amazing is that Sasaki, in his next game, actually pitched 8 more perfect innings (a total of 17 consecutive perfect innings), before leaving the game with a 0-0 tie. His consecutive streak finally came to an end in the next game as the 1st Orix Buffalo batter that he faced got a single.

Still, 17 consecutive perfect innings is a feat that we likely will never see in our lifetime and deserves celebration and certainly a place in my advanced no-hit ticket collection!

Took a while, but these just popped on PSA's website...I submitted them about 10 weeks ago. I'm happy with the results, and they were accommodating with how I wanted the labels to read...

Nothing terribly rare or exciting here but Iím happy to finally land a full version of this ticket, even if I over paid. It embodies what makes tickets fun for me. My Dad surprised me with tickets to this game when I was sixteen. I loved Dave Parker so he made sure our seats were in right field. Living in an American League city I only got to see him on TV. Because of my Dad I got to witness both of the Cobraís throws from the perfect vantage point. We still talk about those throws and the fun we had that day. This ticket makes me smile and isnít that why we all chase this silly stuff?

FYI Jackie Robinson had his first 2 RBI in a Home Game
would have added value if on the label

I appreciate your opinion...but I was determined to have them put "Rookie Season" on the label, same with the Mantle stub. I'm very happy with how they turned out.

Agree, I like it better with Rookie Season.


I don't care if it his first road hit to the opposite field when batting 3rd in the lineup for a day game above 80 degrees.

Who cares? If it's not a significant achievement, who cares.

ROOKIE SEASON to me stands out more, good choice!!!!

Paulie Walnuts, thanks!...that was my exact feeling as well. IMO, the big "headline" for a 1947 Dodgers stub (that is not his debut, or his first hit, or first HR, or first SB) is "Rookie Season".

Cool tickets, Greg!

Interesting, on the second one, I assume they mean Trout, but they donít list the playerís name on the label.

Default Pres. George W. Bush signed Ticket Stub

I got this one signed by then Gov. George W. Bush when I was 13 at his box seats in between innings at the Ballpark in Arlington.

I know not rare, but a cool memory of days gone by.

New pickup, 1936 Martinsburg blue Sox season pass with hack wilson managing. Hack played for Martinsburg in the early 20s before his big league debut, and returned as a player in 1935. But Very little info is available on this year 1936, apparently they were part of the blue ridge league but I can't find that info. And even though it says manager hack did still play in games.
Beautiful ticket, I love the secretary and presidents autographs as well.

These three full tickets recently returned from PSA. It was my first submission to a TPG. I am pretty satisfied with the results. For what itís worth the Spahn is the only one slabbed to date. The Musial is the second highest grade, and the Griffeys ticket is the highest graded version of that ticket.

Mike, love the tickets and how PSA labeled them (I assume you were specific on that?). Well done.

(The Griffeys playing together always blows me away, must've been so special for them...totally unique experience).

Gotcha, worked out well then! I think when the labels are properly notated, it can really help tell the story of a ticket.

Great tickets.

I used Past Time Pros to get the Parker ticket signed and was very happy with their service. It took about three weeks to return. The Bob Robertson and Elroy Face tickets I got signed last weekend at the Monroeville show. He inscribed the World Series ticket ďBunt?!Ē Face inscribed 22 straight wins.

Nice tickets Mike! I remember that 1971 game 2 very well. Me and my buddy were watching it and marveling over Robertson's power. He also had a double I believe, and Mays had a HR and a double as well. Great series that led to an even better WS.

Cleaning out my garage this weekend and my wife came across this program in a box. There was a mint condition stub to Game 5 of the 1995 ALDS tucked inside. I attended the game with my wife and father. I kept my ticket but thought the others were gone forever. It was a pleasant surprise.

I'll add a couple that are special to me as a Reds fan...Pete Rose passed Ty Cobb to become the all-time hits leader with hit #4192 on September 11, 1985.

Can anybody help me understand whether this ticket stub I recently bought is what it was advertised as? The ebay seller says that it came out of a meticulously kept/labeled collection, and that this was for this 5/1/1933 game, in which Arky Vaughan hit his first grand slam (and inside-the-parker!)

There's a big "55" on the ticket, but 5/1/33 was certainly not the 55th Pittsburgh or Philadelphia game of that season, so I'm not sure what this might refer to, or if this means that this ticket stub wasn't from that game. In any case, I'd hugely appreciate any help. Thanks!

Default Two Tix: Willie Mays 3000th Hit

My dad took me to the game when Willie got his 3000th hit when I was seven years old. He gave me the tickets (and a cool Willie Mays portrait he probably bought at the game) about 10 years ago shortly before he died. My son was a rabid baseball fan (and little leaguer) and I promised him the tickets to go with a Sports Illustrated cover he bought of Willie's 3000th hit (signed). Well, I lost the tickets and then moved homes and never really expected to see them again. My wife and I finally got around to cleaning the garage this week (after living in our new home 3 years) and look what we found!

On what would have been Mel Parnellís 100th birthday, Iím showing off his 1st career win ticket! Parnellís 123 wins is still a Red Sox franchise record for left-handers (ahead of Jon Lester - 110) and 4th all-time for all Sox pitchers behind Roger Clemens, Cy Young and Tim Wakefield.

There's a big "55" on the ticket, but 5/1/33 was certainly not the 55th Pittsburgh or Philadelphia game of that season, so I'm not sure what this might refer to, or if this means that this ticket stub wasn't from that game. In any case, I'd hugely appreciate any help. Thanks!
As far as I know nobody has ever figured out how the ticket numbers correspond to specific games for those Phillies tickets. I believe that specific seller just made up information for all of the tickets they listed on eBay. The entire group of tickets were a recent purchase from a Huggins & Scott auction. There was no reference to any back story or hand writing referring to specific dates in the auction listing. Unfortunately I think someone bought the lot, made up several fake listings to flip them on eBay and made a 5 figure profit in the scam. I hope Iím wrong but the facts seem to point to that.

Thanks! It was quite a thrill to find these bad boys! I'd done a LOT of looking at our previous home with no luck, so this was a big surprise.

Thanks for the info. Was it this lot, by chance? I can't find any others that look like what you're describing. I guess this will just be wasted money then, if there's no way to really date the ticket to any particular game, and maybe the seller was dishonest. Unfortunate.

Your link is correct. They match up exactly if you compare. Several collectors reached out the seller and were told that they were consigned and the consigner had the story about the person keeping records and writing the dates on the back. Did the one you won have the date written on the back of it? I would certainly not hesitate to reach out to the seller and attempt a return if you are not happy.

Thank you; I appreciate the extra detail there. Yes, my ticket stub has a date written in pencil on the back. I don't see it exactly in the lot picture, but it's a very similar look to those tickets. Maybe I will reach out to the seller to try to learn more. Thanks again.

Edit: I searched seller's other sold listings, and you're right, some of these tickets match the Huggins+Scott auction lot 100%, like this really obvious one. I sent the seller a message asking for more information. I also mailed Huggins and Scott, just on the off chance they might be able to shed some light on things.

Seller's response:
Hi,

All of the ticket stubs were sold on consignment from a collector's grandson. His grandfather attended every game and would date the tickets on the back of the stub at the end of every game.

Thanks,

Bobby
This seems impossible, right? Like, this guy clearly bought these tickets from the Huggins and Scott auction. Or, someone else bought them and sold them to him, but in any case, he did not actually get these from the grandson of a collector to sell on consignment. At best, he got lied to, and at worst, he's lying. Is there another way to interpret this situation?

Edit: He followed up with:
A consignor reached out to me and told me he had just acquired a collection that his grandfather had with dates on the back of the tickets. He sent me the tickets in a binder with the dates on the back and pictures with his grandfather at the games. I took the binder apart to list the tickets and sent him back the binder with the pictures. I have no clue where the consignor acquired the tickets from. I'm just going by what he said and the information that was in the binder.
I asked him for pictures of the binder and the grandfather game photos, etc, or to follow up with the consignor for such provenance information. Reply:
I'll ask the consignor. I'm fairly certain these didn't come from an auction house though. I looked at the link that you sent and they are similar, but there's numerous amounts of tickets that have that exact same stamp on it. Grand stand seats were numerous back then. Basically a general admission ticket.
For anybody following or researching this situation/seller in the future, I am 100% convinced that this seller's ticket stubs came from the Huggins and Scott auction. The paper grain signifiers match completely, as do the edge perforations/deckling. Best example of that attached (one image with green circles marking extra-obvious unique match spots).

Interesting and thanks for passing on the info. They are 100% the same tickets, others have compared photos like you did so they did come from the H&S auction. I noticed the eBay seller does seem to be a reseller for all kinds of items so the story they are sharing could be legit as to Ďwhat they were toldí. I find it hard to believe H&S would not include the fact that they were hand dated on the back, especially since therre were some big moments in there. Iím not sure if you searched all the sold eBay listings from this situation but the seller sold $10k+ of these things so itís a bit more than a little white lie in my opinion. Maybe next step for you would be to ask H&S if they were dated and came in grandpas binder? If no, theyíd know who the buyer was.
