    1920's-1930's Ticket and Press Pass Collection Lot of 40. This is an intriguing grouping of tickets, stubs and press passes from a host of metro New York sporting venues in the prewar era, most prominently Madison Square Garden and the Polo Grounds, plus college football stadiums in New York City. Most of the pieces are in superb condition; many have a punch hole from the event, but otherwise show little wear. The lineup includes college and pro basketball at the Garden, along with boxing matches and track meets. Group offers a fascinating glimpse into sports history in the Big Apple in the Roaring 20's and into the Depression.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
