I don't know much about ticket collecting. One of these is from the first WS night game in history. What is a realistic value, not based on the BIN listed on eBay? What are thoughts on having them slabbed?

A ticket stub is an historical artifact. Condition matters, but to nowhere near the obsessive degree promulgated by slabbers and embraced by some card collectors.

When's the last time you saw a slabbed-and graded artifact at the HoF? (Or any other museum, for that matter?)

Please don't slab them. The Bar code on the slab would not provide a pleasing visual contrast. Plus, after the authentication company inevitably goes out of business, it would just look silly for these tickets to reside in there.

I guess that if you're looking to sell them, it's a different scenario. If I were the buyer, however, I would simply crack them out of the ugly slabs.

Tickets inside plastic slabs, what a terrible thought.
Leave the slabs to the card guys, it is so thrilling for them to get that 8 on the 1981 Donruss rookie card of Joe Charboneau.
I would just as soon put this full ticket into a slab as tear it up.
I just feel bad for the person who owned this ticket to arguably the most thrilling World Series game of all time and did not make it.

Richard,

I don't understand that ticket. I don't ever recall that game ever being played.

Greg, disgruntled Red Sox fan perhaps?? happy.gif.

I read a story about this game once, Theo Epstein and his brother were STANDING on their living room couch, holding hands, ready to leap in the air when the Sox would win the WS.

Sorry, Theo but you had to wait a while happy.gifhappy.gifhappy.gif.

I attended that game...I was in right field in the upper deck, so my recollection was seeing the ball go through Buckner's legs from behind him. It's a view I've never seen on video.

Barry, I figured you were a Mets fan,, lucky you to have been there.
Is this our year??
I renewed my Saturday plan, getting tired of waiting for another post season.

A ticket to the first ever World Series.

Watch Boston face mighty Honus Wagner and Pittsburgh as the Red Sox take the series.

John,

Sorry your question hasn't been answered and this has turned into a show-and-tell thread.

Of course, I'm going to continue the latter (with a 1920 theme) and not help with the first (because I don't know):

My guess on those WS ticket stubs that started this thread is about $40-50 apiece.

Richard,

I VAGUELY remember being over my friends house on that date watching something on T.V. with our girlfriends/now-wives with a couple of guys from N.Y.

Vaguely mind you, I don't remember much at all. Or, so my psychoanalyst tells me.

All I slightly remember was the smell of his carpet as for some reason we ended up on the floor that night with our hands holding our heads in some sort of fetal position.

Years late (Late October 2004 to be exact) I saw someone familiar holding up a sign on the green monster. Yup, it was my friend and I had this wave of nausea seeing him there. All of a sudden it was 1986 again. But things turned out o.k. and he was up there again the following night holding a big sheet that his kids made complimenting Belhorn on his home run the night before.

When I finally got it out of him asking how he was so lucky to get such tickets, he mentioned that he knows a certain high ranking Baseball guy in Boston.

Lucky S.O.B. happy.gif

I hear you all loud and clear. Forget about having these graded. Thanks for all the great scans. Keep them coming.

Not a World Series ticket, but I wonder if anyone can provide any info on this Indianapolis ticket? What year, what opponent, etc.?? I have pasted some info below, of which narrows the time frame.

Thank you in advance.

This is the only WS ticket I have--a 3-1 Yankee win as Lopat goes 9 & bests Larry Jansen. Lopat gives up 3 hits to Monte Irvin and only 2 others and Joe Collins homers to even the Series at 1 game apiece.

Also the game in which Mantle, running down the ball that DiMaggio should have been chasing, caught his foot in an outfield drain and destroyed his knee.

He was never the same.

I considered sending these in to be slabbed. I now see the light. They are fine as is. The '59 phantom game # 7 ticket was in Don Unferth's desk along with 11 others. The game #1 ticket shared on this thread was great. The Sox scored 11 runs, 2 homers by Klu and every inning update was announced by student runners from classroom to classroom at my Junior High in the Chicago area. But, no game #7 was to occur. How about those "Bush League" Braves tho!

I have had that stub since I was 11 yrs old--Grew up the biggest Mickey Mantle fan in the world--have scrapbook w/ newspaper clippings from the early '50s w/ all kinds of Mantle pics from the papers & magazines, including the '51 WS ---and NEVER TO THIS DAY & your post did I realize or connect the stub to the Mantle drainpipe incident!

The stub was given to me by someone who went to the game & was tucked away for years in a cigar box w/ other little sports items I saved.

I CANNOT BELIEVE I never put 2 & 2 together on this one!

Thanks for your post!
