Do you have any importantYankees tickets from the 1920's?
I WANT THESE TICKETS!!!.366 There are few numbers as perfect as this one. What a treat to read through Ty Cobb's career batting numbers and witness his arrival in 1907, just his third year, where he leads nearly every batting category. As a 20-year-old.
What PSA 9 and PSA 10 52' Mantles are to card collecting, these two tickets are to ticket collecting. Blue chip, incredibly rare, and overflowing with history. Perhaps the only investments that had a better return than blue chip sports collectibles in the last 10 years were bets on 3 or 4 tech stocks. One of the owners of a PSA 10 1952 Mantle turned down a $10,000,000 offer last year. Here's an opportunity to buy or trade for a couple national treasures.
There are fewer than seven 1908 World Series tickets and fewer than ten 1907 World Series tickets known to exist. The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown has never been able to find them, and even the great collector Barry Halper could not find a 1908 World Series ticket (perhaps because it was the most poorly attended series in WS history). Frank Chance's Cubs were a great team in the middle of the 'oughts, making it to the World Series 3 years in a row and winning two of three (07' and 08'). Ty Cobb and his Tigers also made it to the World Series three yearsin a row (07', 08', 09').
In 1907, the Tigers did not clinch the American League Pennant until Saturday October 5th. They had been in a tight race with the Philadelphia Athletics until the very last days of the season. Massive, spontaneous jubilation overcame the city of Detroit when Philadelphia lost to Washington on October 5th, giving the Tigers the Pennant. 12,000 reservations came into Harris' Cigar Store in Detroit for 4500 reserved seats. The remaining general admission tickets, for game one at Bennett Park, would only be sold on game day at the venue--first come first serve (October 11, 1907)(the first World Series game ever played in Detroit).
Game 1 in Chicago (10/08/1907) at the West Side Grounds, was thought to be the largest crowd that ever watched a baseball game (24,377).Game 1 is tied at 3-3 in the 12th inning as darkness arrives, and the game is abandoned (first tie in WS history). The National Baseball Commission rules that a tie game must be replayed in the same venue, so game 2 is played the next day in Chicago (10/09/1907) and the Cubs win 3-1. Game 3 is also played in Chicago on the subsequent day (10/10/1907), and the red hot Cubs win again (5-1).
Five boys are noted to be sitting under the Bennett Park ticket window at 4 am Friday morning amid the gray mist that shrouded the city. At daybreak, a 6th hopeful fan joined the line. At 7 am the first woman joined, 11th in line. And by 9 am, 3,000 Tiger fans are now in 2 lines which extend from Michigan Avenue south, and north alongTrumbull Avenue. The general admission ticketsare described as "pasteboards." The price of the general admission ticket is $1. The reserved seats ($2) and the box seats ($2.50) have already been sold at Harris' Cigar Store. "At 10:30, the ticket windows and the entrances to the park weresimultaneously thrown open . . . and skilled ticket sellers passed out the precious pasteboards with remarkable rapidity and the long lines filed into the gates in a quiet and orderly manner. An hour after the gates were opened there were probably 6,000 persons in the park. The new right field bleacher was the first to fill up and in less than half an hour after the first spectator hadentered the park, it was a solid mass of humanity, with tier after tier of faces rising one above the other. The grandstand also filled early, the seats in the coveredpavilion being held in slight esteem, as it was never completely filled, while the grandstand was crowded to suffocation long before play was called. By noon the playing field was completely encircled by excited, eagerspectators, who waved their pennants and shouted themselves hoarse upon the slightest provocation." Unfortunately for the Tigers, the mighty Cobb could not lift them above Chance's Cubs, and they lost 6-1 in front of their home crowd of 11,306. The Cubs swept the series the following day 2-0 (10/12/1907). Four Hall of Famers played for the Cubs (Mordecai Brown, Frank Chance, Johnny Evers and Joe Tinker), two HOF's played for the Tigers (Ty Cobb and Sam Crawford).2 The number of times Ty Cobb struck out during theentire 1926 season (his 22nd in the majors).
1907 ticket is a game 4 ticket. 1908 ticket is a game 3 ticket. Both have moderate wear and the expected patina for 110 and 111 year old tickets. As you can see in the photos, they are bothabsolute museum pieces and very well cared for. I welcome your questions and I love to trade.
sale is for 1908ticketONLY. 1907ticket
