How To Attribute the Game No. on Undated Tickets
 David Shakir
David Shakir
 To Games Played - By David Shakir
David Shakir has compiled an extensive study on  ticket stubs that did not included dates on the tickets. Once the correct year is established, combined with a method for correctly attributing the game number to the actual game played, collectors can now purchase special event, and player milestone tickets with confidence. David is also a PSA Consultant specializing in Undated NY Yankees Tickets.
 

   Ask David: Direct your questions or feedback, about undated ticket stubs, New York Yankees, Stadium/Grandstand or Bleacher ticket stubs to David Shakir theshak13@gmail.com You can also contribute to this on going study by sending David scans of your ticket stubs, both front and back.   
 
    When trying to attribute the game number on a ticket without a date, to the game played, it is important to remember that all the baseball game reference websites only list completed official games played. Results and box scores, in the order in which they were played, both home games, and road games. Games that were postponed, such as with a rain out, are not listed. There is also no indication for games that were played after being rescheduled. Simply counting down the home games listed will give you an inaccurate date for your numbered ticket.

 The method used to attribute the game number on an undated ticket stub, to the correct date of the game played, starts with the team's Home Schedule. With the schedule, give each home game its specific game number. Home game no. 1 through home game no. 77 for a 154 game schedule, and 1-81 for a 162 game schedule. Each game will have the date it was scheduled to be played.

 Then after each home game is numbered, we can cross-reference it with the games played & results schedule. By comparing the dates for the games scheduled, to the dates the games were played on the results schedule, we can determine which games were never played; which games were makeup games, and if they were played on an off-day, or added to a scheduled single game, played as a double Header.

 Official schedule double headers count as two game numbers but the number of the first game was used for admittance to both games. However, separate game admission for a Holiday Double Header was common in the 1930's, and two separate ticket No.'s were used for admittance to each game. This happened in 1925, 1932, to 1936. These games on the team's official schedule will be marked with AM & PM. 
 
   
  Another thing you should be aware of are Synthetic double headers. Heading into the 1930's baseball saw a major decline in week-day afternoon single game attendance, due in part to the great depression, and high unemployment. To boost gate receipts Baseball offered two games for the price of one. What they did was remove a scheduled single week-day game and added it to a Sunday game earlier in the season. They called it a "Synthetic Double Header" (Synthetic Double Headers, were sometimes created due to stress on the schedule caused by excessive Rain outs)

 Tickets for games that were postponed for any reason, due to rain, or darkness (before the use of lights) were voided. Rain checks were used to exchange for any future regular season game of same price. If the "Make Up Game" for the postponed game was added to another scheduled game to create a double header, the ticket number of that scheduled game was used for admission to both games. If the postponed game was made up on an off day, an "Extra" or "Emergency" ticket was issued for admission. Most teams reserved tickets printed before the season that featured a letter in place of a game number. Tie games played to the regulation 5 innings or more before being called off, were official. The game was rescheduled and played from the start.
