    A peerless tribute to America's greatest game

    1967-2018 Super Bowl Full Ticket Run of 52--Number One All-Time Finest on the PSA Set Registry!


    UPDATE: Total SMR value for this ticket run is over $200,000.

    It was December 5, 1856 that the New York Mercury coined the term, "the national pastime" to characterize the game of baseball. And clearly, for a dozen decades to follow, the sport was the alpha dog of the pack by every metric that mattered--fan base, marketing dollars, the relative fame of its leading practitioners. There simply was no contemporary football equivalent to Babe Ruth, to Ted Williams, to Mickey Mantle.

    But the tide of American culture in the post-war era has trended toward speed, toward action, making our "national pastime" feel more and more like a throwback. That's part of its charm--a large part--and this hobby is, to a significant degree, an affectionate homage to that gentler pace of a day at the ballpark. It's clear that today the sport of football, with its thunder and flash, is the truest athletic expression of an America raised on the pumping strobe of MTV videos and blockbuster action films.

    And, arguably, there is no date on the calendar as thoroughly American as Super Bowl Sunday, an event that serves as a liturgy to all that has come to define our nation, both good and bad, from elite competition to crass commercialism. No single event captures the attention of more American citizens, with television viewership outpacing even the balloting of Presidential elections.

    It hasn't always been this way, of course, and this collection serves as the most effective tangible documentation of the contest's rise to prominence. And, like the game itself, there is no challenger to the throne of supremacy, the All-Time Finest complete set of all fifty-two full tickets on the PSA Set Registry.

    Please see our online listing for a link to that registry page, including all grading and population data. As the old hobby saying goes, the safest investment is always the best of the best.
