  • 'Old' World Series Tickets...

    What do you think about 'Old' World Series Tickets (stubs)
    as collectibles? Are they a good investment?

    It's already been 'done'. Not sure if you can find a good price on one. Nice to collect, bad to invest (IMHO). Since the baseball card explosion back in the 80s and 90s, everyone has been booking up on their knowledge of baseball.

      Investment........Make sure its actually "OLD" and Rare

      Depends on what you think of as "Old". The Old ones are pricy, well into the hundreds even thousands for certain years 1903, 1919, 1927, etc. They and the press pins are not easily found for a good deal. You have to fight with the big boys for them. As an investment I think they hold value.

      All new stuff (last 50 years) is more risky, there are thousands of WS tix stubs from each recent game, because everyone kept them THINKING they would be worth $$. Its all supply and demand. All new collectibles (cards, autographs, tix, etc.), especially from 1970s on up, will never be worth good $$ in future because of this supply and demand thing. These new items were ALL kept (and kept in MINT condition) because the owners thought they will have future value. NEVER! Look at the fools that bought Beanie Babies for a recent example.

      Back in 1910 no one thought a cigarette or candy card had any value or ever will. Thats why they have high value now. The only items that are and will always be worth good $$ are items that were often abused and eventually thrown away ie. PreWWII cards (1880's-1941), old toys, old comics, old rare stamps, etc.

      Good example is the Babe Ruth card next to my name, when it was made no one cared if it had value, no one knew how many were made, it wasnt slabbed, put in a top loader, etc...... it was played with then.... Now fast forward 85 years... This is now the only known example of this card. Discovered a couple years ago in Cuba. Old = Rare = Value

      Bottom line..........The older the better (and if it was something that was usually thrown away, even better)

        Moden tickets generally only have value today, if they are full, not stubs... World Series games in particular, as most people who spent the 100s for them went to the game.

          How about a stub to Game 6 of the 75 Series?

            It might get a premium due to being Game 6 (Fisk, etc.), although probably not all that much more. Here are the tickets on eBay currently.

              That's in part because tickets aren't torn anymore, they're scanned. As far as 2004 W.S. tickets go, people were getting above face value for Games 1 and 2. That's pretty incredible condsidering that the lowest priced ticket was $125.

              EDIT: What I meant was that people were getting that much for the stubs--of course they were getting more than face before the game!

                Thanks, Yankees! I'll hold on to it and give it to my son someday. He's a Yankees fan so it won't have any sentimental value to him, and he'll probably sell it.
