I was ripping out my carpet that was layed in 1967 and i found this red thing laying between the carpet and the tile. I was quite shocked to see this 1967 reds ticket stub. As you can see from the pic, it is in great shape.

The game was Aug 11, 1967 on a friday. Box 14 Tier 6 seat 8 in the lower section at the high price of $3.00.

If you look at a calender for Aug 11, 2006, it will also be a friday.

Is this stub worth any money or do you think the reds museum would like to have it?

Incase you're wondering.........

The Reds played host to the Dodgers on Aug 11, 1967. Dodgers' lefty Jim Brewer went 7 innings and relief specialist Ron Perranoski went the final two frames to shutout the Reds, 5-0.

Jim Maloney started for Cincinnati and was lifted after allowing 3 runs in his 5 innings of work. Lou Johnson hit the game's only HR when he belted a longball off Reds' pitcher Don Nottebart in the sixth-inning.

Veteran infielder-outfielder Jake Wood, purchased from the Tigers on June 23rd, pinch-hit for Maloney and struck out making him 2-for-17 in his days as a Reds' player. That plate appearance would mark the final MLB appearance by Wood.

I think Jake Wood might of had some minor claim to fame as being mentioned on RedsZone at one time or another.

Good find, it's in great shape. $3 lower box, sounds pretty reasonable.

What a neat find! Very unusual way to find it. I would think the Reds HOF would like it.
BTW LD I remember that game in your signature. I listened to it and it was quite a comeback. One of the more miraculous comeback wins I ever known from the Reds.

If anyone knows where I can get the audio of that HR call let me know. I know it WAS out there about 4-5 years ago when somebody on RedsZone came up with a link to hear it.

Nice item. I just did a fast search on eBay and someone had a 1943 Grandstand ticket stub for the Reds they listed for $9.99 - it didn't sell. But someone else has a Dodgers ticket stub from 1955 and it's up to $23.07. You could probably get a few bucks for it, although you never, sometimes things take off. I sold two vintage dance tickets for about $25.00 each a few months ago. The remaining ones sold for about $3.50 in a couple of groups. Not bad for a $1.00 investment.

By the way, it might enhance the value because it was the one player's last game, even though he was more or less a journeyman.

Email someone from 700WLW that is where I have heard that call in the past. I think that is Marty's best call!

Jake Wood was the man, an ex tiger, he was one of my finalists for all time glory at second base, competing with the likes of Brian Koelling, Neil Fiala, and of course German Barranca
