It began with a man who had an idea to collect sporting tickets, originating from one of the earliest ticketed sporting events in the 1870’s. He searched for tickets of all kinds: bowl games, college championships, any iconic event. His hobby quickly turned into an obsession for finding not just tickets, but schedules, brochures, patches, stickers, trading cards, any memorabilia unique to the Americana sporting world.
He realized these were more than just records of past games, teams or athletes; these were iconic graphic images that captured spirit, representing rare and authentic sporting culture and heritage. He wasn’t alone in his reverence; he knew he possessed items that connect people to their favorite teams, and the images represented more than just a sports memory.
The more he collected, the more he wanted to share with friends and family, and help connect people to their personal history, their families’ history, their community, to events that shaped their lives. It’s baseball, hotdogs, apple pie and lemonade. It’s part of our cultural identity. It’s Vintage Brand.
