Please do not ask me who sent me this e-mail or how much he payed for this item. He wishes to remain anonymous and I respect that.
Let's call him "Sandy". A mutual friend told me that Sandy had a April 15, 1947 Ticket Stub. I was shocked. I've never seen one. My friend presents me Sandy. I didn't ask him anything about the stub because I was shy and didn't want him to feel uncomfortable.
A couple of days later I ask our mutual friend if he can send a e-mail to Sandy and ask him if he can take a picture of the ticket stub and e-mail it to me. A day later Sandy writes to me and tells me that he wants to remain anonymous but doesn't have a problem in sharing his amazing story right here in my blog.
It's a long story. But it's worth it. From "Sandy":
She had a second ticket!
Amazing. After this e-mail, I did ask him how much he payed for it. Sandy responds:
I respect that. No problem!
It must feel great for a collector to have this item. These are collectible items that should be in a museum or at the Baseball Hall of Fame!
Thanks Sandy! Treasure that forever and I hope one day, the Dodgers can build a museum like Yankee Stadium and you can share your item with the rest of us!
