Game Souvenirs – What do you take home?

Game Souvenirs – What do you take home?

One of my favorite things to do is see a new stadium. I love taking in the atmosphere and views of each new one I visit. But I always try and take something away with me as well. In the past I have gotten hats, t-shirts, towels, and more for souvenirs. But until recently I have never thought about the simple souvenir that I had been collecting already, game tickets.

The problem with hats, t-shirts, and what not are that they are bulky and heavy when traveling. Ticket stubs however are small, light, and easy to keep track of. I kept a stub from each of the games I went to in Korea, and from now on I plan on keeping up with that trend.

What do you keep from new places you visit? I’d be interested in knowing what others keep so leave a comment and let me know.

Below are photos of my ticket stubs. One from each of the 7 stadiums in Korea.

    If I’m at a Minor league park, I try to buy a team set of Baseball cards for the home team. At a Major league park, I try to see if they sell soft ice cream in those mini helmets.

  2. I like the idea of the team sets. They have small hand towels here in Korea that I like to collect but I only have one for half the league so far.

    I’ve been saving ticket stubs for many years, and one of these days I’m going to organize them and put them under glass on a bar top or coffee table – assuming I get permission from my wife.

    (I also keep concert ticket stubs and, before they went sticky and computerized, I kept my baggage tags from every flight I took.)

    As I’ve visited baseball parks over the past few years, I’ve been pretty stingy on souvenirs, although every so often I just have to buy the home team’s cap as I did at Miller Park in Milwaukee and at Wrigley Field in Chicago. It was either that or try to take a cutting of the ivy, but somehow the latter didn’t seem like a good idea.

  4. I do a lot of hats too but now I have more than I need. I like the idea of putting the ticket stubs under a coffee table or bar top.

    I find it interesting that even though you are overseas that there is a lot of English used on the tickets. As i just looked at one of my last tickets of a past Minor League game I attended there was only English. I wonder why other countries use English on their printed materials?

  6. Korea may be the exception. They love English here and it is everywhere. I guess it never crossed my mind because I see it everyday. After all, it is the reason I am here working but I would be interested to see where else it appears overseas.

    Hi, I’m Rusty Banks, Content Director of Stubstory.com and I found your website today. I was curious about the possibly of integrating some of your ticket stubs and the stories behind them into what we are doing.

    Would you take a look at http://www.stubstory.com and see if you’d care to share some stories?

    When you have a second – can you shoot me an email to talk about whether you have an interest in having your stories appear on Stubstory.

    I’m looking forward to hearing back from you.

    Thanks

    Rusty Banks

    I have not started this yet, but I think itd be fun to collect a pin from each stadium, then stuck to a hat or lanyard of some kind. Who knows if they all sell pins, but it seems simple enough and small enough!

There are three things in my life which I really love: God, my family, and baseball. The only problem - once baseball season starts, I change the order around a bit. ~Al Gallagher, 1971
