I collect ticket stubs. I mainly collect stubs from Braves games but also I try to get opening day stubs from every team each season.
This stub is special to me not just because it is the first game played in Atlanta by my favorite team but also because of a special connection I have to old Atlanta/Fulton County Stadium.
I am named after my great Uncle who raised my grandfather and 8 other siblings after me Great Grandfather died. He worked for several years as part of the construction crew that built Atlanta Stadium and was always very proud of being a part of building it.
I love this ticket for that reason and also because of the old school Indian face on the stub along with a picture of the stadium. It is just a cool ticket…
This ticket was from the longest game I have ever been to. This was the 19 inning affair between the White Sox and the Red Sox on July 9th, 2006. Papelbon was one out from a save in the ninth when Jermaine Dye hit a solo shot just over the left field wall to tie the game. Tadahito Iguchi eventually won the game with a single to score Alex Cintron.
I found this in my father’s scrapbook.
That he attended this game, and no doubt enjoyed it, pleases me greatly. This is especially true because today he has no use for baseball. We can’t enjoy the game together because he wrote it off after the 1994 work stoppage.
This is a clubhouse pass from the 1959 World Series between the Dodgers and the White Sox.
This is a ticket from a 1960 Milwaukee Braves game. I wanted to do a new version of it with little tweaks to the layout and typefaces.
