Default For the "Beatles" fans

Looking for old money I came up with a couple of concert stubs from my teenage years. Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto September 7, 1964.

$5.50!!! That alone is mind boggling. Although that was a lot of money in 1964. Nice memory. Do you remember the opening song?

Ya when you pay $5.50 for a good seat to watch the Beatles live, its pretty hard to come up with $150 for a crummy seat to watch some nobody.

Well kazuya Im a sentimental kind of guy. I stuck these in a book a long time ago and, unlike pressing a flower from some important occasion that 6 months later cant remember what that occasion was, the tickets are a constant reminder of a great event. And it seems the tickets are worth a lot of money. These are the real deal and not some printed replicas. There are collectors of Beatles memorabilia and ticket stubs are a big item. There were only a certain number of concerts and Im sure most of those tickets are lost in one way or another. If there is someone out there wanting a ticket or two from the September 7, 1964 concert at Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto, Canada these are for sale. It was the first tour they made of North America and the first of 3 stopovers for the 3 tours they made at the Gardens.
