Mike,
Seriously, sometimes things just find you if you look long enough.
I've been looking for ANY WaJo 1912 win ticket seemingly forever and then this guy showed up.
As they say, better be lucky than good!

C'mon Scott, seriously, you found a treasure map in an old library and in the process of following it to the ticket you had to battle bad guys and snakes. I find that much more believable. LOL
Great find either way my friend.

Speaking of interesting tickets.

I have this up on Ebay along with some others.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/18465060451...84.m1555.l2649

I had never heard of this game until I researched it more. (only 1 currently graded by PSA - Press Pass)

It featured an Old Timers Game with Rogers Hornsby (who was a KKK member) playing against some Negro Leaguers, one being John Donaldson who pitched against Black Sox players Happy Felsch and Swede Risberg in the 1920's after they were banned from Baseball. Some say he was among the greatest of all Negro League pitchers. 33 years pitching. 413 wins. 5,081 strikeouts. 14 no-hitters. Two perfect games. 22 strikeouts during a game in August 1914.

http://www.attheplate.com/wcbl/1925_1i.html

and this one actually has footage of him pitching:

https://www.mlb.com/news/the-amazing...tive%20decades.


And if that isn't enough it that day at Wrigley the ballgirl was Marilyn Monroe!

https://sabr.org/gamesproj/game/july...-future-stars/

Just a really unique Ticket from so many angles. Also, have other unique Tickets {'27 yankees, etc) up ending tomorrow (Thurs night) for any Ticket Collectors check 'em out!

Not a high price ticket, but a cool piece of baseball history Sept. 28th 1995 Expos pitcher Greg Harris beomes the 1st pitcher in the 20th Century to pitch both right-handed and left-handed in the same game, The last Pitcher before Greg was Tony Mullane in 1893.

Default 1953 St. Louis Browns season pass- Bobo Holloman no-hitter

Many thanks to net54's David Shakir for finding this 1953 St. Louis Browns season pass for me.

In addition to this being the final year of the St. Louis Browns organization before their move to Baltimore, this also was the year that Bobo Holloman pitched a no-hitter in his 1st ML start.

Bobo Holloman's no-hitter IMHO ranks as the most unlikely to ever have been pitched. Holloman won only 3 games in 1953 before being assigned to Toronto, never to return to the ML.

Only a miserly 2,473 fans attended this game due to nasty weather.
The weather was actually so bad that Bill Veeck, master promoter and owner of the Brownie's, offered to let the fans that braved the weather to attend any other 1953 Browns game for free.
I suspect that in order to attend this bonus game, that a fan would have had to surrender their ticket to Holloman's no-hitter on May 6th as proof that they were actually there.

In any case, Holloman's no-hitter ticket has been ever-elusive in my quest to find every no-hit ticket post WWII.
This pass in of itself is rare, and will provide a nice placeholder in my no-hit ticket collection until I can find an actual ticket to this game.

Wait a minute... a season ticket in 1953 was only fifty cents?!

What am I missing here?

Gary,
I'm assuming that the pass was issued as a complimentary pass (friend of the owner, etc.) but legally certain taxes/fees still needed to be collected.
BTW, complimentary annual passes are not super unusual as I have seen others from other teams as well.

When I do settlements at concerts I often need include taxes due on the complimentary tickets that were issued for the show as an expense.

Here are two pickups of rather pedestrian tickets. Well they aren’t pedestrian to me. As stated earlier 1971 Houston and San Diego Stubs are very difficult to come by. In five years these are the only two I have added to my collection. The seller of the Padres stub has since sold two other 1971 Pirates at San Diego stubs. I was an under bidder on both. The prices were so ridiculous even though I needed them I couldn’t justify spending the money. I included a screenshot of that silliness.

Ouch. Someone collecting Clemente hit tickets? Like you said, a pedestrian game/games but if they don't come up often then the bidding often gets out of hand.

It is ridiculous at times. I just purchased this full ticket for Willie Statgell’s last homer. It was his 475th and is the Pirate franchise record. It cost half of what the Padres stub sold for.

It depends what all happened in the game and if someone else collects whatever happened. I just sold a Clemente HR stub and I know there is a woman who collects all Clemente HR tickets so there is that also.

She must be the culprit. It’s an odd way to collect Clemente.

Default Virgil Trucks 1st no-hitter ticket

I recently was able to scratch off one of only four remaining post-1940 no-hitter tickets that are on my want list.
To be honest, this ticket was one that I was doubtful that I ever would find due to the extremely low attendance.
It's the only known example of this ticket in the hobby that I am aware of after collecting this theme for over 45 years.

Only a small handful of pitchers (6) in MLB history have been able to pitch TWO no-hitters in the same season.
In 1952, Detroit pitcher Virgil Trucks was the third to accomplish this feat, joining Johnny "Double No Hit" Vander Meer (1938) and Allie Reynolds (1951). Another 21 years would pass until HOF'er Nolan Ryan would join this trio in his historic 1973 season.


On May 15th, 1952 only a scant 2,215 fans attended the Tigers game at Briggs Stadium between the hometown Tigers and the visiting Washington Senators.

Alabama native Virgil "Fire" Trucks was masterful in this game striking out 7 Nats, with his only blemish being a walk that he surrendered in the 8th inning to Nats catcher Kluttz.
The game was a scoreless tie until the 9th inning, when Detroit's Dick Wertz hit a walk-off homer to send the loyal Tiger fans home with huge smiles.
Final score: DET-1 WASH-0

Congrats Scott. That's one of the one's I saw come up that I haven't seen before. I was going to ask you if you already had it, but you usually do. LOL
Glad you were able to pick it up.
