Dating Yankees Stadium/Grandstand & Bleacher

 Ticket Stubs - By David Shakir
Along with Dan Busby, David Shakir has compiled an extensive study on accurately dating New York Yankee, Stadium Admission, Grandstand, and bleacher ticket stubs. From 1923-1979, these tickets were printed with just the game number. The date for the game scheduled was not included. 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 on Undated NY Yankees Tickets.
 

   Ask David: Direct your questions or feedback, about 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.   
 
  About the Study  
     From 1923-1979 the New York Yankees did not include dates on regular season, Stadium Admission, Grandstand, and Bleachers tickets. As a ticket stub collector of player milestones, I needed to know if the Stadium/Grandstand stubs I had or buying were correctly dated, and attributed to a specific game. I teamed up with Dan Busby, who also has a large ticket collection, had the same questions, and also wanted to get to the bottom of correctly dating the stubs.

 Focusing our attention to the 1933-1947 era, Dan Busby, and I compared contrasting tickets in our two collections and other available images. We systematically grouped tickets by the NY Yankees Presidents name, ticket design, printing company, legal information and wording printed on the front and back of tickets. We also noticed slight differences in tax information and disclaimers.

 Some tickets had the same price and ticket stock color for consecutive years. We then came to the conclusion that the series letters placed under the game number were used to differentiate tickets from the previous year.

 Series letters were used so that the ticket collectors at the various turnstiles at the stadium could tell if tickets with the same game numbers from the previous year was being used. The significance of the capital letter underneath the game number enabled them to determine that.

 Not all tickets of this era had the series letter, however those without a letter can be attributed to one specific year based on style/color/verbiage. The rest of the tickets all included a series letter. The letters range from "A" to "L," but without an "I." Why there are no "I" tickets, we do not know. Perhaps it was because the number "1" and the letter "I" are so similar.

 While there are some slight variations of color shading, tickets attributed to specific years do have distinctively colored ticket stock. Stadium Admission and bleacher tickets were printed on different colored ticket stock.

Method for Attributing Game No.
 Game No.'s were given to the printer as soon as schedules were known so any Home Game printed schedule would match the Game day ticket so each game was given a game number 1-77, the dated tickets and undated tickets each having the same game number .

 By having the home game Schedules and by giving each game scheduled its specific game # 1-77, we then can determine which games were never played and which games were makeup games and played as double Headers. Official schedule double headers count as two game numbers as 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 1920's, and two separate ticket No.'s were used for admittance to each game. This happened in 1925, 1932, 1933, 1934, 1935 and 1936.

 It is important to remember that all the National Baseball game Reference websites Showing games played, results and box scores, only show actual official games played, so counting down the home games listed will give you an inaccurate date for your numbered ticket.

 You can use the New York Yankees Home Schedule on this website to find the actual Home Game No., and date for any NY Yankees game played, to see if you are lucky enough to have a key game, which is one of the main reasons that make this part of the hobby so much fun.

 
  The Findings of this study have also been nationally published on the PSA website Unlocking the Mystery of Undated Yankee Tickets in the 1933-1947 Era
