A Bunch of Old Ticket Stubs

I was looking for something completely unrelated to cards while digging through the bedroom closet today and found an old scrapbook I put together when I was in junior high and my first few years of high school. The first four pages of the scrapbook were ticket stubs from various baseball games and other events I've been too. I thought I would share them here ...


One interesting note here is that the Reds/Royals ticket stub is from the game where Pete Rose Jr. debuted and got his first major league hit. There is also a ticket stub from Opening Day 1999, which is one of the few times I've managed to go to Opening Day for the Reds as tickets are extremely hard to get.


My aunt always got Reds tickets from her work in the early 90s and we would always go when she got tickets. The stub from the WWF show was the first live wrestling show I ever went to and it was one of the few events I ever went to with my dad.


See the next scan for a picture of me at the Indians/Orioles game from 1998.


The picture at the bottom is a picture of me taken by my uncle in the summer of 1998 (I was 13 years old) in front of Jacobs Field. We were visiting my aunt and uncle and my uncle and I went to the Indians/Orioles game (see the third scan for the ticket stub).

I've got some more ticket stubs in another scrapbook that's buried in my garage. Once I find that, I might scan some more in and share those as well. Hope you enjoyed this little look back.

  2. I found a folder of old ticket stubs recently too. I wish I had done a better job of saving those over the years.

    Very cool post!

  3. Ticket Stubs are harder to come by now that it's so easy to just print an electronic ticket (or even just have the usher scan the barcode off your phone) - I still try to get tickets from the box office once a year just to have a physical ticket.
