Lot 146: Uncut Sheet Early 1900's Gambling Tickets
Auction Date:10/5/2005 9:00 PM EST
Once, fan betting was an accepted form of leisure activity, which nearly destroyed the game in its early days. This rare 11x14" sheet is comprised of twenty-four uncut wager tickets (No.2641-2664), each with the light brown image of the Buffalo IL team under the prtined names of three teams from the NL, AL and IL, listed as "Boston Am" or "Rochester Int.", etc. Light discoloration around the edges and minor corner wear, small piece missing in top left corner, otherwise EX. Wonder if Charlie Hustle is interested.
