When a Ticket Becomes More Than a Ticket
When Giants pitcher Chris Heston threw a no-hitter, he saved something special to remember the moment – his family’s tickets to the game. But they weren’t computer printouts with a bar code on them, they were actual tickets. According to The New York Times, having the “real deal” made them that much more special to Heston. And Heston isn’t the only major league player or fan who treasures real tickets as a souvenir. Not only can a memory of your first game can be priceless, for particularly note-worthy games, like Derek Jeter’s last game, the tickets can be worth quite a bit of money too.
