Default 1913 Yale-Harvard Baseball Ticket - Legit or Not?

Hi everyone,
I need some help determining whether this is legit or not. I'm not an expert in old tickets, but I would guess that tickets from the early 1900's would be printed on thinner paper, not thick cardboard.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Thanks,
Ray

I'm no ticket expert, but had some 1890s baseball tickets that were on very thin cardstock. Perhaps paper.

Default Ticket

Hello Ray,
The ticket looks good to me, as I've had a number of tickets from this era, both football and baseball. The tickets were made with paper adhered to a cardstock. Some of the more ornate tickets, with ornate designs on back, had paper adhered to the cardstock on both sides - the front with the date and game information, and the back with the design. There have been a number of these tickets on ebay in the past year, that all orginated from the same ticket company scrapbook find.

Default More Tickets

Here are a couple other examples that I recently purchased. The Yale-Columbia is for a Football game played at American League (Hilltop) Park so it will fit into my Highlanders/Yankees collection. The two baseball tickets appear to have the paper affixed to thicker stock on the one side while the football ticket has it on both sides with the ornate design on the back. The red ticket has some punched perforations through the ticket halves, but the other tickets do not. I'm just wondering how easy it would be to tear the thick ticket without perforations? All of that was raising red flags that they were maybe not legit.

I am not an ebay seller, so the ones on ebay aren't mine, but I am familiar with them. These were proof tickets found in a large turn of the century scrapbook. The tickets were kept by the ticket printing company as an example of the different types of tickets they made, and my guess was used to show prospective schools what they could do. My thoughts on the lack of perforations was that this was something done after the printing process, probably by a tool that once clamped upon a ticket created perforations. That just a theory on my part.

Actually after giving it more thought, and maybe ticket collectors know better, I wonder if full tickets of this time period had perforations? Becuase most of the partial tickets from the 1900 time frame I've had had very uneven tears - so perhaps the ticket taker would just fold and tear aiming for that dotted line.

I've got a number of Harvard football stubs from the 1900-1910 range (not from this scrapbook find), and the stubs definitely are perfectly torn. There definitely appears to be some fine perforations on them.

Here are a couple of those stubs, along with one of these proof tickets as well. They all appear to have had perforations for the stub. (Sorry for the crappy pic - it's the best I can do at work right now!)

Most early football games were simply a printed card stock ticket that was torn in half. However, Philadelphia was home to some of the early high visability football games and likewise their tickets tend to be of higher quality. I believe that many of the nicer tickets Ive seen were for games played at Franklin Field from 1890s-1910s.

Thanks to a heads up from Keith, here is my earliest full ticket from Franklin Field. The perforation is pretty visible on this one.

Probably shouldnt limit it to Franklin Field...but more to Franklin Field, Soldier's Field, and Yale Field. They tend to draw the crowds.
