Back in the early or mid 1990s, the subject of the Seattle Pilots came up in The Slice. In response, a reader mailed me a ticket from that short-lived team's first home game.
I cannot remember if it was a ticket stub or the whole ducat. In any case, it was an interesting souvenir — especially for those who read Jim Bouton's “Ball Four.”
I mailed it back to the reader, advising him that it might be worth something one day.
And just this morning I noticed that one was being sold on eBay. The asking price was $245.
