That's great info, thank you for sharing! I love learning about the "forgotten" sports heroes of our past.

Guys, thanks for all the replies and inspiration. Since starting this thread, I have realized a couple of things:

1. I really like programs and would perhaps like to buy some tickets that go along with individual programs.

2. There are a million different programs out there, and I need a focus. While I like AFL and may buy some of those programs, I really like college football and bowl games. Aside from bowl games, I would like to buy programs that are at least semi-connected to some historical event. Those won't be as easy to locate, but perhaps I will get lucky!

It's definitely fun to chase down the ticket with the program, too!

That is a cool piece! It would be fun to buy some older bowl game programs and tickets.

Thanks, Jeff. I am starting to have a better idea of what I think I might want to try. As a kid, I was crazy about the bowl games. Ebay has a great selection of programs and tickets. Is there another good source other than the bay?

A question that has come up during my AFL program searches: do you care if an otherwise nice program has been three hole punched?

It sounds like you were very lucky to have sold some stuff off prior to (if memory serves me correctly). Sorry to hear about this though because I know how much the team means/meant to you.
