Remember when I had to clean out a closet for my daughter, so I had to relocate my baseball cards and memorabilia? Well I took pictures of some of the items:

The NY Daily News were selling these pins for a buck back in 1969. My father went over to the News Building to get me a couple of these pins. My dad worked downtown so he had to head to midtown on his lunch hour to get these for me. I miss that man everyday.

Check it out Jets fans, 2 tickets from the 1968 AFL Championship Game played at Shea Stadium Jets 27 Oakland Raiders 23

  1. $6.50, wow, it is amazing how fat things have come, not always for the better, but what can you do…if only wages would up like prices.

  2. Nice find Steve.

    While prices were drastically lower, World Series appearances would be sparse for both participants from that day onward.

  3. Those Jets championship game ticket stubs brought back sad memories of the two stubs I carried around in my wallet after the game. Sad because within a few weeks I lost my wallet. ‘nuf said.

    Mezzanine section 25, row M, seats 18 and 19, in case anyone finds them.

    Still waiting for another home championship game.
